Thematic Forums and Partnerships

community icon 3

There is a small number of thematic forums which have responsibility for strategic plans that contribute to the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan. These bodies are not created by or the responsibility of the CPP Board, but each has its own individual governance and operating arrangements. However they agree to provide the CPP with an annual report on their activities including meetings, training of members and the overall workplan.
