The Newcastle Partnership is committed to working together to deliver change, and to ensure that people are able to influence issues, priorities and activities in their localities across two key priorities of vulnerability and economic growth. It has therefore placed locality working at the heart of its work, as it empowers communities to develop their own approaches to dealing with issues affecting their own localities and enhances wider partnership working.
Locality Action Partnerships (LAPs) represent the Newcastle Partnership’s established infrastructure for the delivery of locality working and offer communities access to a range of partners to address and deliver against local needs and priorities. Also, LAPs assist in community engagement and empowerment and play a part in the achievement of improved community cohesion. There are nine LAPs in the borough, which are made up of a range of partners from the public, private, community and voluntary sectors with an interest in their local area.
