Support Your Community
We want Stirling to be the best it can be. We know that this will only happen when citizens and communities are supported to flourish, and decide for themselves the support and services that they require to thrive, and how this support should be delivered.
Communities can mean different things to different people, much like the term ‘third sector’. Ultimately we think that community is group of independent people that share a common area, interest or identity.
In this section you can find out more about how you, or your organisation can support your community. You will find information on the different communities in Stirling and some of the local groups that are active in these areas- if you know of more please let us know! We will also share information on ways that you and your community can become involved in decision making through the Stirling Community Planning Partnership and the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership. If you are an individual, you may wish to have your voice heard on these partnerships through your local community council or through the NHS Forth Valley Patient Forum. If you are a staff member, trustee or volunteer of a local third sector organisation visit our Third Sector Forum pages to find out more about how your organisation can influence local decision making- and make connections with other groups at the same time.
