Guide to Accessing Community Finance

If you wish to find out how to access community finance for voluntary led groups come along to the Brockagh Centre on Wednesday 9th September at 7.30 p.m.  More and more community enterprises are realising that grants cannot fully meet all of their funding needs. It is now becoming necessary for them to generate their own capital in order to fulfil both development and cash flow requirements. Consequently loan funding, and in particular Social Finance, is becoming a primary tool in satisfying these needs.  Find out more by coming along on the night or check out www.communityfinance.ie

Get Yourself Online

The closing date has been extended on these courses until December so there is still an opportunity for you to take that step to build your confidence on line.  Cover the basics and learn how to email, skype, shop online, pay car tax and much more.  It cost €20 for 4 x 2 hr course and it is free to those over 65.  The classes are small and the lessons are taught in a relaxed and fun way with plenty of time for everyone. We will be running a few of these popular courses so days may vary. Go on you know you want to!  Book your place – call (0404) 45600.
