HORSHAM TOWN COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP
WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HORSHAM DISTRICT COUNCIL
We are currently (October 2018) seeking a new Committee Chairman and two new members for the Committee:
The Board meets in Horsham four times a year and the role of Chair requires a flexible commitment of a few hours per week to attend locally based meetings and to monitor the progress of projects.
Good networking and leadership skills would also be useful in this role. One pre-requisite, is that anyone serving on the Committee should reside within the defined area outlined in our Articles of Association, which is the area covered by the three Horsham Neighbourhood Councils and North Horsham Parish Council.

What is Horsham Town Community Partnership?
The purpose of Horsham Town Community Partnership (HTCP) is to seek the ideas and hopes of local people and organisations and, where possible, make them happen.
HTCP is legally registered as a company limited by guarantee. As such, it can apply for grant funding that other organisations such as local councils -- Horsham District Council or Neighbourhood/Parish Councils -- may not be able to apply for. Our Company Number is 07765509.
HTCP is a voluntary group composed of members of the three Neighbourhood Councils, North Horsham Parish Council, Horsham Society, Horsham Blueprint, Horsham in Bloom as well as other interested residents and organisations of the town.
Our projects are those that residents would like to see tackled but wouldn't be addressed by the statutory authorities for various reasons.
The aims of the Community Partnership are to benefit Horsham town and its community by working on issues and projects of interest and concern to the area. These will contribute to securing its long term viability and the maintenance of its particular character, heritage and amenities.
HTCP is action orientated. Any actions worked on, have been highlighted through consultation and views expressed by local people.
HTCP, backed by local community opinion, decides the priority of any actions undertaken and to find the resources to work on projects.
A 5-year Action Plan was produced in 2011 after research through extensive local public consultation, Neighbourhood Councils and information from research work done by Horsham District Council and other organisations.
The two most important resources for the Community Partnership are people and funding.
More about our current and past projects can be seen on the Projects page of our website.
Future projects are under discussion and a new Action Plan is being produced.
