Hello and welcome to Community Links (South Lanarkshire)
Community Links was established in 2002 and is a company limited by guarantee with charitable staus as an independent community consultation and engagement organisation. We originally evolved from the Social Inclusion Partnership and now work across all the communities in South Lanarkshire, with particular emphasis on areas that fall into the 15% worst deprivation as identified by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD).
We deliver innovative and effective consultation services to partner agencies and service providers to involve local members of the community in local decisions. We hold a Service Level Agreement with South Lanarkshire Council Tackling Poverty to deliver projects such as Asset Based Community Development in local neighbourhoods, provide support to a community-led environmental project - Pride of Place, produce the Community Matters newspaper, Social Marketing Campaigns and actively recruit local volunteers to assist with our projects and events. We are one of the few dedicated community engagement organisations in Scotland with a strong focus on the community Asset Based approach. We also hold a Service Level Agreement with our local Hamilton Locality Public Partnership Forum to promote and encourage local residents to become involved in how local healthcare is delivered in their communities.
