Research into local partnership resilience during the pandemic
Researchers at Napier University are undertaking a project to examine Local Partnership resilience during the pandemic.
The project, which is funded by UK Research and Innovation and the Economic and Social Research Council as part of their response to COVID-19, is looking at how local partnership work in Scotland (in bodies such as Community Justice Partnerships, Health and Social Care Partnerships and CPPs) has been affected by, and adapted to, the pandemic.
They are planning to begin with a survey of people working in local partnerships in Scotland, and then to follow this up with interviews with people working in partnership. Once 'best practice' has been identified, the results will be fed back to relevant stakeholders. As part of this project, they would be interested in the views of people who work in partnerships at the local authority level, including Community Planning Partnerships, Health and Social Care Partnerships and Community Justice/Reducing Reoffending Partnerships. This includes people working for local authorities in various capacities, but also employees of relevant third sector organisations, Police Scotland, the NHS, Skills Development Scotland and other organisations.
