Community Engagement Events

The next phase of Formartine Community Engagement events takes place in January following the successful implementation of these events in early 2019. For this phase we have teamed up with Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership so the events will have representatives from far more services. Local Policing Inspector Andy Scott said: “These are partner focussed events offering face to face contact with our communities to identify areas of concerns and issues. Whilst it is widely acknowledged there is already accessible means in which the public can contact each agency, many often do not want to attend Police Stations, Council Offices etc. and are not comfortable utilising social media platforms. It is often these individuals who form the majority of our most vulnerable citizens and as such the Community Surgeries will continue to encourage them to come along and address the most relevant agency with their concerns.” The dates of the surgeries are as follows; 31st January 2020 1000hrs – 1200hrs – Balmedie Library 1330hrs – 1530hrs – Pitmedden Hall The event will be attended by the following partners; . Police Scotland . Scottish Fire and Rescue Service . NHS . Aberdeenshire Council Area Office . Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership . Elected Members .
