This workshop will include information on the partnership process, monitoring and evaluation requirements and the partnership criteria. Organisations can send their proposal to the <a href="">Recreation and Parks Department</a> following the workshop, where proposals will be scrutinised and evaluated according to set criteria. Approved partners will then be notified and a partnership agreement will be drawn up and signed.</p><p>The link to the invitation to the workshop will be available here in June 2017. The department can only accept proposal during this time and cannot accept proposals on an adhoc basis.</p> <span> </span><span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Donate</h2></span><p>Donations to our sports and recreation programmes take many forms; from small donations of prizes for events and competitions to equipment for facilities.
