North Berwick Coastal Area Partnership Area Plan

This Plan is the draft as circulated on 16/1/16 and is very long!  

NORTH BERWICK COASTAL AREA PARTNERSHIP PLAN 2015-2025

Introduction

The North Berwick Coastal area is a great place to live and the North Berwick Coastal Area Partnership Plan is about making life even better for everyone who lives, gets around, works and visits the area. It is a chance to do things differently.

The Area Partnership brings people from across the community together to get our voices heard and influence decisions about the things that matter to us. We will continue to work with communities across the Partnership Area to develop this ten year plan in a fair, transparent, accountable and inclusive way.

Our Vision

Our vision is to work with our community to make life better for everyone who lives, gets around, works, and visits the North Berwick Coastal Area.

Our Values

The overarching value of the Area Partnerships is to reduce inequalities both within and between our communities.

How we can make a difference

 

There are several ways for people in communities to have greater influence over decision making and influence over the things that matter to us.

  • There are things we can do ourselves
  • We can influence the way council and services are delivered in our community
  • We can influence other public and voluntary bodies
  • Once we have identified our priorities we can apply for funding so we have a bigger pot to spend

 

The Area Plan aims to identify our long, medium and short term outcomes. In the longer term, we are working towards an area where we have:

  • a welcoming community where everyone is valued
  • people have a sense of belonging and feel positive about where they live
  • people are healthy and active
  • a thriving Arts Centre offering employment opportunities
  • a designated space for young people
  • a network of paths/ cycle ways joining all our communities

 

Aspirations

Within the plan we have identified priority outcomes and actions within the following aspirations:

  • Great place to live
  • Great place to get around
  • Great place to work
  • Great place to visit

 

 

 

 

 

GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

Our priority outcomes are:

  1. We want to sustain and improve the opportunities for children and young people, ensuring services and facilities are inclusive and meet their needs whilst equipping them with the resilience, confidence and life skills needed to realise and fulfil their potential.
  2. Our communities are able to make healthy choices and access the services they need in order to maintain a positive level of well being.
  3. We want to support an increasing older population to live as independently as possible and that we are able to cater for increasingly complex needs and adopt a proactive approach to ensure inclusiveness and improved quality of life.
  4. We want people to continue to feel safe and for everyone to have a sense of pride and belonging in their community.
  5. To protect the high quality natural environment.
  6. We want to retain the sense of a ‘village/town-identity’ in the communities of North Berwick, Aberlady, Gullane, Dirleton, Drem and Whitekirk and develop the understanding that the North Berwick Coastal area is made up of a variety of local neighbourhoods- each with their distinct needs and identities. Ensuring the protection of open, green spaces between and within communities.
  7. The local community / voluntary sector groups are able to grow, flourish and develop.
  8. Local residents are well informed about opportunities and developments in their area and how they can get involved.
  9. Increase the availability of affordable housing
  10. Reduce impact of inequality for people living on a low income in an affluent community.

 

GREAT PLACE TO GET AROUND

 

Our priority outcomes are:

  1. We want to make it easier for people to get around the North Berwick Coastal ward by providing viable public transport options, increasing the safety and availability of active transport routes, making our community a pleasant and enjoyable place to live and/or visit.
  2. Improve public transport by offering reliable, frequent, co-ordinated bus and train services which run in and across North Berwick and the Lothian’s.
  3. Upgrade and improve cycle and walking routes across the North Berwick Coastal Area.
  4. Increasing access to local places and services.

 

GREAT PLACE TO WORK

 

Our priority outcomes are:

  1. Increased opportunities for local employment and business growth.

 

GREAT PLACE TO VISIT

 

Our priority outcomes are:

  1. The North Berwick Coastal Area is marketed as a top tourist destination, has a wide range of leisure activities available and well maintained public spaces.

East Lothian Partnership

Our local plan links to East Lothian Partnership which is working towards 10 strategic outcomes that together contribute to an East Lothian where everyone has the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life and which contributes to a fair and sustainable future.

After looking at the evidence and working with local people and community groups the North Berwick Coastal Area Partnership has identified the priority areas listed for action across the three strategic objectives of the East Lothian Plan – Sustainable Economy, Resilient People and Safe and Vibrant Communities.

Action needed to achieve this Timescales

short, -medium long term

Lead Group / Agencies involved Additional resources required Identified by Key milestones / indicators of success
3.1 Establish Older People’s Network to take actions forward          
3.2 To mitigate the effects of the reduction in existing services and deliver services that focus on the needs of older people

–       Exploring the development of the “Allied Health Professional” model to allow for a fluid delivery of services. This would reduce the need for travel to appointments as the allied health professionals could visit local day centres and peoples homes directly

–       Recruit an older peoples link worker whose role would be to signpost, refer and carryout basic health checks in peoples own homes. They would also provide a role in supporting the carers of older people by signposting them to services, support and increasing benefits uptake.

–       Support the East Lothian Community Care Forum to develop “Wellbeing Passports” that provide a quick way of briefing health professionals on the health needs, wishes and life of the person who visits them. This would reduce the number of times older people have to repeat information about themselves and allow professionals to provide the right care to those with dementia.

–       Work with North Berwick Day Centre to help them deliver more services and activities to older people both on and off site.

 

         
3.3 Ensure that services can meet the needs of people living in an area that is not adequately covered by public transport and that older people can access the type of transport they need to help them get around their own community

–       Develop more options for volunteer based transport services such as accessing the “Co-Wheels” car share service (for both volunteers and carers to access) Ensure that older people know how to change hospital appointment times and what the alternative clinics or venues might be by adding this to information leaflets sent with appointment times.

–       Explore the need for a “wonder bus” service that allows older people to go short distances around their local, villages and towns.

–       Work with bus providers to improve cross county transport.

–       Work with the Royal Voluntary service to expand their car transport service by assisting with recruiting local volunteers.

 

 

         
–       Pay for mini bus drivers licences so that mini buses owned by local groups can be used by the community when they are not in use.

 

Jan-March 2016   GENERAL Funding allocated    
3.4 Prevent admission to hospital for older people by

–       Supporting health services to work with the friends and family of older people to focus on prevention interventions and the advocacy of the older person.

–       Work with nursing and care homes to highlight alternative options to using emergency services and promoting the use of the “SPAR” process where the details and medical history of those with frequently hospital admissions are easily available.

 

         
3.5 Prevent the delayed discharge of those who do get admitted to hospital by:

–       Working with NHS Lothian to explore suitable community focused options for support such as the “Hospital to Home” model of care.

–       Build the capacity of local day centres so they can buy hoists and deliver “pop-up” virtual and mobile day centres.

–       Work with services providers to increase the number of “Respite Plus” payments and make more emergency care package available.

–       Build on the “discharge to assess” model.

         
3.6 Keep older people and their carers socially involved and promote intergenerational opportunities

–       Build on existing models of good practice to support those who are house bound or have mobility/ transport issues to get out of the house. e.g the Royal Voluntary Services “Good Neighbours” service and the Bethany Trust “Pass the Baton” service” and the “Adopt a Grandparent” model of volunteering to allow people to access shops, leisure activities and appointments.

–       Provide care homes and day centre with IT equipment so that older people can maintain contact with friends and family using modern technology and support them to develop skills in using new technology.

–       Make adult education class accessible for older people by working with Community Learning and Development services to hold classes at suitable venues including care homes and day centres.

–       Make socialising activities such as the tea dance available to carers and young people     too

–       Use existing models to provide opportunities for young and older people to mix such as using the “Inspiring Young Peoples” model and the “Duke of Edinburgh” award scheme.

–        

         
3.7 Providing information

–       Make sure that up-to-date information on services, activities and volunteering opportunities is available so that older people and people retiring to the North Berwick Coastal area can participate.

 

         
3.8 Recruiting and supporting volunteers

–       For the Area partnership to work with local groups and local people to recruit more volunteers to support older people and meaningful activities in the community.

 

         
3.9 For the Area Partnership to take an active role in keeping the community involved in any planned changes to local services and influencing the delivery of local services by:

–       Gathering the views of older people.

–       Influencing the commissioning of services process.

o   So that carers are paid for travel time and are paid a living wage. This ideally would increase the number of people choosing to become carers and reduce the length of time that it takes to put a care package in place and reduce the number of people experiencing delayed discharge from hospitals.

o   To reduce travel to improve the quality of care

o   Ensuring the council adequately monitors the care for the elderly at home services.

–       Getting involved in consultations on local facilities such as the Eddington Hospital and the development of the new Community hospital.
