The Guide to Development Trusts and Partnerships

This Guide to Development Trusts and Partnerships was published in 1998 and is based on consultancy and training work in the UK over the past 20 years, carried out by David Wilcox and colleagues in Partnership Ltd. More here on partnerships.

The Guide aims to cover two overlapping areas of interest: the nature and creation of Development Trusts, and more general issues of developing partnerships, of which Development Trusts are one model. It includes:

Introduction: who the guide is for and what it aims to do
Development trusts: what are they
Partnerships: what works and what doesn't
Creating a trust: the general approach
Start up process: what it involves
Stages: the four main phases in creating a trust
Information sheets: more detailed content on setting up and running trusts
A-Z of partnerships: some of the key terms and ideas
Resources: organisations and further reading

The guide was commissioned by the Development Trusts Association – now Locality
