Young Dancers in Final Day of Third Sector Week 2020

Young People & Older People

As we reach the final day of Aberdeenshire Third Sector Week 2020, we reflect on the outstanding contribution made by Third Sector Organisations.

This week’s offering is just the tip of the iceberg of what is on offer across Aberdeenshire and now, more than ever, the need for partnership working is necessary, particularly as we approach the Recovery Phase.

A paper has been prepared and is being launched today, on behalf of Aberdeenshire Third Sector Strategy Group outlining the steps to ensure Community Participation in the Recovery Phase.

In addition, today we hear from several organisations who support Younger and Older People around Aberdeenshire; connecting lonely and vulnerable people to their communities.

You can also view the final edition of our Grow Your Group presentations: Monitoring and Evaluation.

Thank you for joining us for this remarkable and inspirational week!

The Route Map for Community Participation in the Recovery Phase
Community participation has been essential in the collective response to the emergency caused by COVID19 and the ongoing crisis. There are still many questions that cannot be answered regarding the future, as globally we are still in the grip of the pandemic and communities are still actively responding and reacting to the immediate need. However, thought needs to be given to the way forward and how this experience will inform approaches which will make for a more robust and resilient society committed to fairness and positive change. Community Participation could help lead the way.
