Open call to professional writers – Paid work

Our Partnership of local residents has been busy over the last 12 months reviewing our existing improvement plan for the area and informing itself on what the priorities should be for our new 3 year plan. We now have a comprehensive set of activities and vision for the area and are looking for a professional writer to help us put everything together in a clear and well written plan that will be presented to our funders and the local community. Please click the below file link for a copy of the writer’s brief. Deadlines for proposals to carry out the piece of work is 20th November.
