EAGER has a role to play in ensuring that communities have a say on the services that matter to them; supporting both community members to take part effectively in the decision making process, and organisations and services providers to engage with and consult the communities they serve within Greenock East and Central.
We work to strengthen the capacity of people and communities make changes and influence wider services that matter to them. We also offer support to organisations on effectively engaging with their communities around the activities they deliver and make sure that they reflect the values, priorities and ambitions of those involved.
We are always particularly interested in supporting neighbourhood groups to work together effectively to represent their communities on issues they have in common.
To deliver on improved representation we will:
- Support individuals to engage with community groups and service providers to achieve change
- Encourage and support groups to engage with their communities
- Challenge decision making bodies to increase community representation.
If you are interesting in finding out more about the organisations that operate in the area and how you can influence their decision making processes please phone 01475 711 733.
