4 Together AAP priorities


Area Action Partnership (AAP) priorities would normally be decided by a public vote every two years; however, the ongoing pandemic has meant that over the last year we have had to focus on how we can support local communities deal with the impact of Coronavirus.

We are updating our AAP Facebook page with any local information regarding the coronavirus. This includes changes to services or support in your area.

We use the results of the vote, statistical information (you can view this on 4 Together Partnership AAP - profile) and local knowledge to make a decision on what our priorities should be for the coming year. If you want to see a detailed breakdown of the results from the most recent vote, contact us.

Once we set our priorities, we use these priorities to help us decide where we should look to take action and allocate funding. 

Current priorities

Over 2021/22 we will continue to offer support under the priority of 'Community Recovery'.  We will also be keeping an eye out for any emerging issues that may need support.  The AAP Board will look at this priority over the coming year and take action and allocate funding where appropriate.

It is hoped that priorities will be reviewed over the winter of 2021/22.

Task and finish groups

We take actions on issues linked to our priorities. To do this, we have priority task and finish groups. These groups are made up of board and forum members and representatives from relevant partner organisations.

At task group meetings, we identify and discuss issues linked to our priorities, and we consider project ideas and requests for funding linked to these issues. If we want to progress any project ideas, we then send them to the board for approval.

If you're interested in getting involved with one of the task and finish groups or would like to discuss an idea you may have for a project, contact us.
