What is Horsham Town Community Partnership?
The Horsham Town Community Partnership is an umbrella core group composed of members of Denne, Forest and Trafalgar Neighbourhood Councils, Horsham Society and Horsham in Bloom.
The purpose of the Partnership is to represent the aspirations of local organisations and residents, and through this, work on projects or issues affecting the town and its residents. The Partnership is registered as a company limited by guarantee and as such can apply for funds i.e.grant funding that other organisations like Horsham District Council or Neighbourhood/Parish Councils can't apply for.
The objects of the Partnership are to benefit the built-up area of Horsham town and its community by working on issues and projects of interest and concern to the area and which will contribute to securing its long term viability and the maintenance of its particular character, heritage and amenities.
The Community Partnership is action orientated. Any action worked on by the Community Partnership are actions that have been highlighted through consultation and views expressed by local people.
It is for the Community Partnership, backed by local community opinion, to decide the priority of any actions undertaken and to find the resources to work on projects.
With research done through Neighbourhood Council Appraisals and information from the District Council, issues that have been highlighted as being worthy projects were brought to the Community Partnership`s attention.
The two most important resources for the Community Partnership are people andfunding.
