The Garioch Partnership

What does The Garioch Partnership do?

We support people and communities with projects of all sizes, both existing and new, enabling and encouraging, and harnessing the skills and enthusiasm of local people.

We can provide information and advice on project planning, funding, community consultation and engagement, governance and dealing with “red-tape”.

We also manage various funding grants within the Garioch area, with the support of a panel of volunteer assessors.

Who is it for?

Any not-for-profit community organisation, large or small, based in the Garioch area or with links to the area can access our support. Organisations can join our membership free of charge and access a range of information and support. Individuals who support the aims of the partnership are also welcome as members.
