Manager Christine Mackay gives an update on the Total Craigroyston initiative:
I hope you have all had a good summer in spite of the dreary weather.
Many thanks to all of you who contributed to our consultation events. In total, 215 local residents and front line staff, from 37 different teams and organisations were involved in nine events.
We had expected to be ready to share the outcome with you earlier in August but in the end, processing all the information we received took longer than we thought. However, we now have a draft ‘Road Map’, which will set the direction for the Total Craigroyston Initiative. The information and insights that we gathered have been grouped into themes and we have identified a range of short and long term actions that we would like to achieve over the life of the initiative.
What is obvious is that there is a real strength within the community and a desire to build on the good work that is already going on. Of course, some challenges were identified and we hope that we can make progress on these in order to achieve the kinds of changes that people would like to see.
We have organised a range of meetings to present the findings of the research back to people who were involved and other stakeholders.
The meetings will take place on the following dates:
Tuesday 4 September at 2pm in West Pilton Neighbourhood Centre
Wednesday 5 September at 7pm in Craigroyston Community High School
Thursday 6 September at 10am in North Edinburgh Arts Centre.
Everyone is welcome but please book a place by contacting Julie Innes by telephone on 469 3162 or by email on email@example.com. Childcare can be arranged for those who need it. Please let Julie know when you book a place.
The draft Road Map will be available on Monday 20 August from the Total Craigroyston Blog at totalcraigroyston.wordpress.com and if you have any comments or observations please let us know.
As well as the meetings above, there will be a short presentation to the Forth Neighbourhood Partnership on Tuesday 21 Aug at 7pm, which is open to everyone.
