Stronger Communities Partnership
What is the Partnership?
The Stronger Communities Partnership is one of the Strategic Delivery Partnerships supporting the Bradford District Partnership to improve the district.
What is the role of the Partnership?
The Partnership will work to ensure that everyone in Bradford:
- has access to information, advice and services and an equal opportunity to succeed
- has opportunities to get involved and contribute to the life of the district
- is supported to get on well with people from different backgrounds
Partner organisations are responsible for the delivery of outcomes. It is the Partnership’s role to co-ordinate this work and to see that outcomes and targets are met.

How does the partnership work?
The Stronger Communities Partnership is a Strategic Delivery Partnership of the Bradford District Partnership (BDP), and is accountable to BDP. The Chair of the Partnership sits on the BDP Board.
Three Delivery Groups report to the Stronger Communities Partnership and carry out its work. These are the:
- Equalities Delivery Group
- Active Citizens Delivery Group

What are the Partnership Objectives?
By 2020, we want no one in the district to be disadvantaged by where they live or who they are. We will have strong and cohesive communities where people get on well, where people value each other and where everyone has the opportunity to get involved in community life in a variety of ways.
