The results will prove that a new approach by these organisations to the public, private and voluntary sectors will, by harnessing focused economic activity, strengthen their position within the community. This will enable them to coordinate and effect long term regional music and cultural development. A social audit will provide a tool for proving their importance to the community and a handbook will be produced to help other communities with similar problems of funding cultural activities. Closer links with commerce and strong regional and international networks will provide impetus, a flow of fresh ideas and later become a source of alternative income. Their reliance on annual handouts from local and central authorities will be reduced and the organisations will become part of a thriving cultural heritage which increases the attractiveness of each community and assist in the retention of youth in the Northern periphery area.
