Community groups learn how to access funding and support

A Funding and Advice Fair for voluntary and community sector organisations

Published: 7th December 2015

A Funding and Advice Fair, to help community and voluntary sector organisations find out about funding and support available to them, took place on Monday 30 November 2015 in Enniskillen Library.

The event, which was organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, brought together a number of funding bodies to offer information and advice to local community and voluntary groups.

Speaking about the Funding and Advice Fair, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“The Funding and Advice Fair is an excellent opportunity for our local community and voluntary sector to access a wealth of information relevant to them.

The Council is pleased to work in partnership with participating organisations so that community and voluntary sector organisations are aware of the various supports available to them.”

Councillor O’Reilly went on to thank those organisations that participated in the event. He also thanked Enniskillen Library for hosting the Funding and Advice Fair.

Exhibitors offering information and advice at the Funding and Advice Fair included the Heritage Lottery Fund, Sport NI, Fermanagh Trust, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and the Community Relations Council, among others.

Two workshops were also delivered as part of the event. Fermanagh and Omagh Local Action Group – which is responsible for delivering Priority 6 of the Northern Ireland Rural development Programme 2014-2020 – offered advice on how to apply for a share of the £8.29 million rural development funding allocated to the area while Fermanagh Rural Community Network offered information and advice on how to register with The Charity Commission NI.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s community services section offers a range of support to community and voluntary sector organisations. For further information please contact the Community Services team on 0300 303 1777 or email info@fermanaghomagh.com.
