In January 2022 Poynton Area Community Partnership changed its name to North East Cheshire Community Partnership (NECCP) to better reflect the geographical area the group represents. NECCP is part of a wider network of partnerships across Cheshire East, and is an independent group made up of like-minded volunteers who understand and represent the interests of Poynton, Adlington, Bollington, Disley, Mottram St Andrew, Prestbury, Kettleshulme, Rainow and Pott Shrigley. Cheshire East Council is also represented.
NECCP works together to make the parishes listed above attractive places where people want to visit, live, work and spend their leisure time. NECCP’s vision is to make its residents and neighbourhoods better connected, to promote a strong sense of place by supporting civic pride projects, to promote health and wellbeing, and work to reduce social isolation. In the wake of Covid-19, NECCP also seeks to address the growing issue of mental health.
Voluntary groups and organisations in those parishes listed above can apply to NECCP for modest grants.
