Rationale for grantee application G-08474 by the Greater Shankill Partnership [GSP]


Established in 1996, the Greater Shankill Partnership [GSP] is a community led regeneration agency in the Greater Shankill area of Belfast. GSP’s Board brings together community, elected and private sector representatives, along with public sector officials. The registered charity is tasked with the delivery of regeneration projects and is responsible for the delivery of neighbourhood renewal, early years, community sports, health and well-being, tourism, and arts and culture.

In 2001, Greater Shankill Partnership [GSP] was given £310,000 for a project titled Early Years Project. With this funding the organisation was to provide bridging support for the Early Years Project, a community-based child and parental development programme.

A three-page long rationale produced by The Atlantic Philanthropies’ staff includes problems to be addressed, how proposed grantee would address the problem, reasons for recommending support to grantee, negatives/risks of grant, evaluation plans, previous grants a project description and expected outcomes.
