This Handbook was developed as a result of a study carried out on the planning and implementation of 142 community-based projects set-up since 1997 under the auspices of the Local Drugs Task Forces (LDTF’s). It is based on the learning obtained through the experiences and perceptions of the project managers of the current projects.

The Handbook is aimed at both new projects and projects already established. It is designed to be a compendium of practical information and ideas and issues to reflect on, relevant to different stages in a project’s life: planning, implementation and review. Accordingly, depending on its stage of development, different elements of the Handbook will be of relevance to a particular project. Projects vary in size, scope and nature and so the individual project will need to adapt the Handbook to its particular needs and circumstances.

The Handbook will aid people involved in planning and implementing a community-based project; primarily Project Managers and Management Committees. The Handbook should also be useful in drawing up funding proposals and in writing progress reports. Some useful publications are cited throughout the Handbook but these are not the only documents which will be of use for the task in hand.
