EVOC is committed to working with others to achieve our shared outcomes. The only way we can further our mission to support the city’s voluntary sector is by working effectively with partners – both within the third sector and beyond it.
Our many partnerships fall roughly into two groups:
- those composed exclusively of our third sector peers (ECTOG, Children and Young People, Learning Disabilities, Older People’s Service Providers, Voluntary Sector Forums, and TSSG)
- and those which reach across sectors (Children’s Partnership, Climate Change, Community Health, Community Safety, Compact Partnership, Edinburgh Interface, and Change Fund.)
We also support – and encourage third sector engagement with – the excellent cross-sectoral work achieved by other groups in the city, with whom EVOC itself does not operate formally. These include for example the Edinburgh Cultural Partnership, the Edinburgh Community Learning and Development Partnership, Joined Up for Jobs, and Capital City Partnership.
Community planning is the formal process that brings public sector agencies together with the third sector and with citizens to plan and deliver services. Many of EVOC’s partnerships operate as either cross-sectoral groups or third sector-only subgroups within the community planning structure in Edinburgh, of which the Edinburgh Partnership is the most formal expression. This structure includes:
- the six strategic partnerships (eg Children’s, Climate Change, Community Health, Economic Development, Community Safety, and the Edinburgh Compact ) which are responsible for delivering outcomes as identified in Edinburgh’s Single Outcome Agreement
- and twelve Neighbourhood Partnerships which are responsible for delivering outcomes through their local community plans and with local citizens.
