The former Local Strategic Partnerships (LSP) at the district level are being restructured during 2011 or have been replaced with Local Area Partnerships, according to Government policy changes. Whatever the name of the partnership it is worth finding out what district wide plans they are reponsible for and how church communities and their buildings could have a role.
Most districts have a ‘partnership officer’ who can provide you with links or further information.
Churches Together in Cumbria (CTiC) tries to ensure that the faith community is represented on these partnerships. See Churches Together in Cumbria.
