Irish Rural Link to discuss transport in Leitrim post Brexit
The next meeting of the South Leitrim Community Network will take place in the Leitrim Association of People with Disabilities(LAPWD) Centre in Mohill on Wednesday, February 27 at 8pm.
A representative from Irish Rural Link will attend this meeting to hear views on the impacts of Brexit and how links with Northern Ireland and the UK can be maintained post Brexit.
Other items on the agenda for the meeting include updates on issues highlighted by the network including rising costs for Community Employment schemes and the need for prompt ambulance service in the county. There will also be feedback from the Leitrim Public Participation(PPN) representatives and feedback on the Re-imagining our Rural Communities project.
We will also provide updates on funding opportunities which are now open and community groups can share information on upcoming events.
South Leitrim Community Network was established in 2002. The aim of the network is to provide a forum where community groups in south Leitrim come together to share information and to lobby on common issues. The network has four objectives: information sharing, lobbying, networking and promoting social inclusion.
The network is supported by the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018-2022 which is
funded by the Irish Government through the Department of Rural and Community Development and co-funded by the European Union Social Fund under the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL)2014-2020.
