We build and manage effective partnerships focused on the participation of stakeholders in service delivery.
UCA offers particular expertise in town centre partnership and town team development and management. We have successfully set up a partnership and provide management services for Wembley town centre and developed both a Business Association and a Town Team for Cricklewood town centre.
We build sustainability and legacy into our projects. This entails training and empowering local people to give continuity to programme-funded initiatives.
We can help in bid preparation – whether assisting you to write a proposal or writing it for you.
UCA has experience working individually, as well as with community groups and local stakeholders on bids. We analyse data and capture the fundamental nature of a place to provide concrete evidence and make the best business case. We secured funding from the London Development Authority for the Enhance project in Wembley (2006-2009) and the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund in Cricklewood (2012-2014).
