Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will host a Funding and Advice Fair for community and voluntary sector groups on Monday 27 February 2017 in Enniskillen Library from 5 pm until 8pm.

The Funding and Advice Fair will provide local groups with the opportunity to drop in any time between 5 pm and 8 pm to meet representatives from a number of funding and advisory agencies including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Big Lottery Fund, Halifax Foundation, Sport NI and NICVA among others.

Speaking about the Funding and Advice Fair, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, said the Council was pleased to work in partnership with participating organisations so that local groups are aware of the various supports available to them.
“The Funding and Advice Fair is an excellent opportunity for our local community and voluntary sector organisations and groups, who play such a vital role in the physical, social and economic regeneration of the district, to access a wealth of information relevant to them. I encourage representatives from our local community and voluntary groups to make the most of this opportunity and to call in to Enniskillen Library anytime between 5 pm to 8 pm on Monday 27 February,” said Councillor Garrity.

Fermanagh Rural Community Network will also facilitate workshops during the evening. At 6 pm there will be a workshop on community venue sustainability while at 7 pm, there will be a workshop on registering with the Charity Commission NI. It is compulsory for all charities operating in Northern Ireland to apply for charity registration through the Commission. Booking is not required to attend any of the workshops.
