Get involved with your Area Action Partnership
Join your Area Action Partnership (AAP) to find out what's going on in your area, and have a say on local priorities.
Join your AAP
If you live, work, study or volunteer in County Durham, you can join an AAP. Which AAP you can join depends on where you live or work.
Why you should join
If you join your AAP, you'll be able to have your say on issues that affect your area. How involved you become is up to you. We'll:
- send you our newsletter
- invite you to our board meetings and forum events
- give you the opportunity to get involved with our task groups
- let you know about local consultations
- share information on funding for communities
See thefor a more detailed description of the background and objective of AAPs.
Recommend a friend
If you're already part of an AAP, please recommend a friend. Speak to your neighbours, people in your community groups, and the people you work with to tell them all about your AAP.
Be part of our AAP board
Our AAP boards meet regularly to ensure that their AAP is on track with projects and priorities. One third of the board is made up of members of the public (public representatives). Our public representatives sit on the board for up to four years. If you are interested in sitting on your AAP board, download the following documents which have information about the post and the recruitment process.
