Who We Are

County Durham Partnership Board

The County Durham Partnership Board is made up of senior personnel within the following organisations:

These organisations are also represented on one or more of the thematic partnerships, along with other relevant partners.

County Durham Partnership Forum

The forum brings together the partnership board and local communities. Local communities are represented by the chairs of the 14 Area Action Partnerships (AAPs) and a representative from County Durham Association of Local Councils (CDALC).

Thematic Partnerships

Area Action Partnerships

Each of the AAPs has a board made up of representatives from organisations such as the county council, town and parish councils, health, police and fire services, community and voluntary groups and the public.

An area forum is held twice a year and members of the public are welcome to attend.

Town and Parish Council

Within Durham County there area a total of 104 parish and town councils and 23 parish meetings.   These local councils can have responsibility for a single area or neighbourhood.  They can represent local interests to external bodies and work to improve local services with partners.  A representative of County Durham Association of Local Councils (CDALC) attends meetings of the County Durham Partnership Forum.

Voluntary and Community Sector

There are many benefits of volunteering, including developing your skills, improving your quality of life, allowing others to benefit from your skills or providing an opportunity for you to improve your local area.
