You and Your Community
There are many diverse communities in Aberdeenshire and this section of the website will help you discover what communities can do for you and what you can do for your community.

We have produced a Standards and Quality Report for each administrative area in Aberdeenshire to capture some of the work CLD was involved in during 2012/2013. Please click on the links below to see the reports.
CLD is also externally reviewed by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIe). The most recent report on CLD and the wider Learning Community are available here.

From time to time community-based groups take action to make a change on behalf of their community. Community action can happen in many ways and tackle a range of issues from organising a one off demonstration, to building a skate park or highlighting run down areas. It can include delivering a service that no one else is prepared to do.
Community action groups can achieve their goals in a wide variety of ways. Taking action on behalf of your community can appear to be a real challenge. Support is available so don't let it put you off. Contact your local community learning and development staff.
Communities should aim to meet the needs and aspirations of current and future residents. Any proposals to change a community should be based upon need. A community's needs are not always obvious. Less obvious needs can be identified using tried and tested methods. Your local Community Learning and Development staff can support you if you are interested in assessing the needs of your community.
Community Profiles are a useful starting point for anyone in exploring the needs of their community.
