Great Aycliffe and Middridge AAP priorities


Every two years we give local people the opportunity to vote for the priorities that they think we should take action on and on where we should focus our funding and resources.

We are updating our Great Aycliffe and Middridge Partnership on Facebook 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 Great Aycliffe & Middridge 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

Our current priorities are as follows:

Children, young people and families

This task group was formed to look at key issues such as risky behaviour, including alcohol, drugs, smoking and crime, activities for 12-15 year olds and children's physical, emotional and mental health.

Community safety

This task group was formed to look at key local issues including youth engagement initiatives to reduce antisocial behaviour, helping to support victims of crime, and road safety.

Older people

This task group specifically focuses on mental health, dementia, depression, access to social activities and facilities. It also looks at transport, welfare and money issues.

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.
