    Of this list - 6, 7 and 8
    Healthy lifestyles will assist with some of the health issues identified in the background information.
    Mental health and wellbeing will assist with problems caused by employment issues, health issues, child poverty, etc.
    Child poverty should be reduced urgently.
    I would argue that the existing 'Moving Around' priority should be maintained - as the chair of this working group we are starting to get to grips with this topic and improving ease of moving around the Garnock Valley will help with a number of the other issues identified.

    1,6,2,36,4,7,9,8. Millions have already been allocated to mental health, but they don’t appear to have been used. Everything in this list is more or less of equal importance, and interchangeable.

    2,3,8,9. The area has increased unemployment compared to Scottish average. There is a willing workforce and good transport links. How can you attract more employers to the area. Look at JD Pierce and other smaller enterprises for successes. Increasing employability would assist with points 8 and 9. There should be minimal child poverty in this day. Well-maintained spaces would attract families and outdoor lovers.

    Moving Around should continue to be a Garnock Valley priority as this has an impact on many of the themes listed above. It shouldn't just be service users who have to move around. There should be more provision for service providers to move around as well, i.e. if a service provider is based in Kilbirnie, they should have an outreach clinic in Dalry and Beith. Access to services will also be impacted by the Halls, Libraries and Centres consultation that is being conducted just now. It is also unclear as to why these consultations are being conducted during lockdown. Had NAC waited until June, it would likely have been easier to reach more people.

    Hard to choose 3 - my top 4 are Employability; Financial Inclusion, Mental Health and Wellbeing and Child Poverty - the overview of data provided is really helpful in guiding our focus on the role of LP in helping to address inequalities
