If you are applying for a grant on the basis that it will deliver an outcome supported by your local Community, you should demonstrate how your application contributes to delivering the Community Action Plan for your area. If your area does not have a Community Action Plan, please demonstrate how your project has community support, e.g. have you consulted the local community, have you undertaken a survey, have you consulted your Community Council or Community Development Trust?
All Community Action Plans can be found on the Community Partnership website.
