Our Renfrewshire

Partnership Working

Partnership working is mature in Renfrewshire, both between the statutory community planning partners, and across the wider Community Planning Partnership network.

In addition, there is also a Community Planning Partnership Oversight Group chaired by the Leader of Renfrewshire Council, and comprising conveners of the Council’s policy boards and a member of the Opposition Group.
