Carrick IAP Team
Carrick District Council secured investment from Objective One, the Regional Development Agency, Cornwall County Council and its own funds to employ a team of six people to manage the implementation of Carrick IAP.

The team comprised a Programme Manager, an Office Assistant and four Development Officers, who covered the following geographical areas:

Falmouth & Budock Area
Penryn & the Roseland Area
Truro Area
North Coast Area

The team was employed by REP Ltd on behalf of Carrick District Council until June 2004 and Carrick District Council following that date.

They helped projects through the Objective One application process by:

Identifying projects that are eligible or signposting to other funds if appropriate
Assisting with the preparation of business plans and funding applications
Sourcing match funding
Assisting with the delivery of successful projects

The implementation of Carrick IAP was overseen by Carrick Community Alliance which represented over 75 local public, private and voluntary sector organisations. All projects were endorsed by the Alliance to ensure that they meet local community needs and satisfy the objectives set out in the IAP.
