Shetland Partnership


The Shetland Partnership is made up of wide range of partners and community bodies who work together to deliver our collective ambitions for the future. It is the Community Planning Partnership for Shetland. 

Find out more about community planning, what it is and how it works here.

The membership, structure and approach of the Partnership is outlined in Shetland’s Partnership Plan

The plan is for all partners and communities in Shetland.  It identifies a shared vision and priorities for all of us to work towards, both individually and collectively, to improve the lives of everyone in Shetland. 

The key focus of the Plan is to reduce inequality of outcome in Shetland – how we will tackle the issues that mean some people and groups have a poorer quality of life than others.

The Partnership Plan is the ‘Local Outcomes Improvement Plan’ (LOIP) for Shetland, a statutory requirement for the Partnership under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.  This Plan supersedes the previous local outcomes improvement plan and the community plan.

Each year the Shetland Partnership will produce an Annual Report outlining what we have been up to over the past year and what has been achieved.
