Working in partnership can make a huge impact on the difference an organisation can make, whether it is partnering with other community organisations or with businesses. Many funders are now favouring community groups working together to tackle common issues rather than working independently.

Included on their webpage is a Partnerships Agreement Template which can be downloaded.|
