This is a way of strengthening civil society by reflecting the importance of the views and actions of communities, when making policy and delivering actions. It empowers local communities, by increasing the capacity of:
people as active citizens, through their community groups, organisations and networks, and
Institutions and agencies (public, private and non-governmental) to work in dialogue with citizens to shape and determine change in their communities1.

*improve the quality of life and control assets,
*Identify programmes that will best address the development needs of new & existing communities
* Identify common themes & priorities that will help inform decision making about and with communities & inform the allocation of CIL funding.
