The feedback received helped to shape the Community Investment Strategy and the Tackling Discrimination Needs Analysis.  These were agreed by Cabinet on 21st July 2011.




The draft Community Investment Strategy sets our proposed priorities and criteria for allocating over £2m of grants to voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations locally. The Strategy aims to make the priorities and criteria for the Community Investment Fund clearer, more transparent and more focused on local need.

Why your views matter

We want to consult, particularly with local equality and VCS groups to get feedback about how the strategy will work for them, to identify potential risks and to find out how we need to refine the strategy in order to get the best results for local communities.
