Guidance on District Partnerships
The Highland Partnership of the Highland Council and NHS Highland have established a series of District Partnerships. They involve Councillors, relevant managers, community representatives and representatives of professional groups (Social Work, Nursing, GPs and so on).
The District Partnerships consider issues relevant to the defined geographic and service delivery area covering both Integrated Children’s Services and Adult Services and are a key element of local engagement.
For more information about District Partnerships download the 'Guidance on District Partnerships' document which provides information about their strategic governance structure, role and remit and 'Agenda item request' form.
Our area of Skye & Lochalsh is divided between two Wards: Ward 11 Eilean a Cheo (Isle of Skye) and Ward 6 Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh (Lochalsh area). The Ward Manager for Eilean a Cheo is Willie Mackinnon and the Ward Manager for Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh is Robbie Bain.
Ward Forums have been set up across the Highlands to help you have your say on what’s happening in your area. The Eilean a Cheo Ward Forum meets regularly in public led by the Councillors who represent you, assisted by the Ward Manager.
Meetings are open to members of the public as well as public and private sector bodies, voluntary and community sector and community councils. They last for up to two hours with a 20-minute slot allocated at the end of the meeting for questions from the public. If possible you should notify any questions in advance to the ward managers.
Ward Forum meeting dates are advertised on the What's On page as soon as they are available.
