Fife's Community Plan & Single Outcome Agreement

Fife Partnership has approved Fife's Community Plan 2011 - 2020. The Partnership brings together the public, voluntary and private sectors in Fife and channels their resources in order to strengthen Fife’s future and make this a great place to live, work, visit and invest.

All the partners have their own services to deliver and business to run. These services all play important roles in building a strong and diverse economy, educating and skilling Fifers, improving health and wellbeing, sustaining and improving our environment and making Fife’s communities safer.

But we also must work across service boundaries and focus on opportunities and risks that cannot be addressed by an individual partner on their own. And to be efficient and effective we must avoid all unnecessary duplication.

Fife’s Community Plan 2011 – 2020 therefore sets out three high level outcomes, each with a number of long term outcomes towards which the partnership groups will work, alongside other key groups. These outcomes are:

Reducing inequalities

  • Making Fife’s communities safer
  • Meeting the need for suitable housing choices
  • Reducing low income households
  • Increasing the capability of Fifers to take action and make a difference to their communities
  • Strengthening communities through regeneration
  • Raising educational attainment and reducing educational inequality
  • Improving early years development of children in Fife
  • Improving the health of Fifers and narrowing the health inequality gap

Increasing employment

  • Extending employment and skills opportunities
  • More dynamic businesses
  • Developing a modern business infrastructure
  • Improving the knowledge and research base
  • Growing businesses and employment in key sectors (including investment in renewables and tourism)

Tackling climate change

  • Adapting to climate change
  • Reducing carbon emissions (including reducing energy use, more sustainable transport and less waste)

Fife’s community planning partners have signed up to these shared outcomes. Lead partnership groups will work together and with the people and communities of Fife to deliver these objectives, with each partner providing a unique and valued contribution.

The delivery of Fife’s Community Plan and the contribution that the Fife Partnership makes to the delivery of the Scottish Government’s National Outcomes are detailed in the Single Outcome Agreement for Fife. The delivery of the Community Plan and the Single Outcome Agreement is underpinned by:

  • Partnership strategies
  • Partners’ organisational strategies and plans
  • Local community planning
