Making links with policy

If your project dovetails with government policy and local plans, funding, support and partnerships will come more easily.

Where to go for information

National policy:

Local plans:

  • Health and Social Care Partnerships: your local HSCP will have information on health improvement targets for the local area. Each partnership is jointly run by the NHS and local authority.
  • Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs): CPPs bring  public agencies and communities together to plan and deliver better services locally. Your local council’s website will have a link to your local CPP, its community plan, and single outcome agreement.
  • Your local third sector interface: each local council has a ‘third sector interface’ to support, promote, develop and represent the community groups; voluntary organisations and social enterprises
