Our connection with the Garioch Partnership has given us access to help us to make successful funding applications to support our work, and an award from the Community Initiative Fund helped GO purchase a mobile screen for our base at Kintore. We know that the development workers at The Garioch Partnership have considerable knowledge and experience of the issues which affect voluntary sector organisations, and we are confident that they can represent our views at planning and policy level meetings. Attending their meetings and events has helped us better connect to other groups in the area.
We must thank The Garioch Partnership for a ‘filtered information service’. A few words at the start of an email can put this context into the information guiding us to the important parts and where we can get support and grants.
The range of experience and knowledge within The Garioch Partnership is very beneficial to us in enabling communication with the relevant departments within the council along with people and organisations outwith the Council.
