North Lanarkshire CLD Partnership

Local organisations involved in community-based learning with young people, adults and community groups

The Community Learning and Development (CLD) Partnership consists of six local partnerships across North Lanarkshire, in line with the six NLP Community Planning Localities. These partnerships involve many of the local services from across the public and voluntary sectors that have a role in developing Community Learning & Development approaches. The six local partnerships link into one North Lanarkshire wide CLD Partnership which aims to provide strategic support for the sector. 

Current North Lanarkshire wide partners include:

  • Culture NL
  • Job Centre Plus
  • New College Lanarkshire
  • NHS Lanarkshire
  • North Lanarkshire Council (including Learning & Leisure Services, Regeneration and Environmental Services, Housing & Social Work Services and the Chief Executive's Office)
  • Routes to Work
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire

Through the six Locality CLD Partnerships, many more local organisations work with the agencies above to develop community-based opportunities that meet the specific needs of their local areas. National partner agencies also work closely with the North Lanarkshire CLD Partnership and its six Locality CLD Partnerships to jointly plan and deliver relevant programmes. 

The CLD Partnership has set out a strategy, which states that "Our vision for North Lanarkshire is of a strong vibrant community where everyone is committed to improving the quality of life, work, and attainment for themselves and others".

The North Lanarkshire CLD Partnership produces a regular newsletter entitled 'Learning in Lanarkshire' which highlights current examples of CLD work and future opportunities. The latest issues of Learning In Lanarkshire are available in the 'downloads' section.
