Gaye Hutchison, Self Direction Project Manager, said: “We are delighted
to be awarded this grant from Objective One and are very grateful to the
Carrick IAP Team for their invaluable support and advice.”
The project was developed with assistance from the Carrick Integrated
Area Plan (IAP) Team and is the first successful Objective One project
for the team.
The Carrick IAP is the local delivery mechanism for European Objective
One funding in the district and is responsible for working closely with
the private, public and voluntary sector to develop successful projects
which will regenerate the local area. The team offers advice and guidance
on whether projects are eligible for Objective One funding; assists with
the preparation of business plans and guides applicants through the Objective
One funding process.
The team has a portfolio of projects under development and is keen to
hear from anyone in the district who has a project idea that will contribute
towards improving the economic prosperity of the Carrick area.
There are four IAP officers, who work across the district.
