Jobs funding for two Inishowen centres 11.11.15

TWO Inishowen centres have been granted funding that will allow them create jobs.
Fianna Fail TD Charlie McConalogue welcomed the Pobal funding to the Slieve Sneacht Centre, Drumfries and Malin Head Community Centre.
The Pobal Community Services Programme (CSP) gives grants to community businesses that deliver services and create employment for people from disadvantaged groups.
“The additional jobs which will be rolled out as a result of this allocation will not only provide employment opportunities for the local communities but will also ensure that these centres will have the necessary staffing levels and resources to ensure that facilities are maintained and expanded," he said.
“The importance of this funding to these groups cannot be underestimated. Many of these community-run centres do not have the resources to employ people directly so these allocations will have a major impact on their sustainability."
He said Spraoi agus Spórt in Carndonagh appointed a manager along with an additional staff member earlier this year under the same programme with a resulting increase in the number of services it provides and a weekly footfall increase of 30%.
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish these groups every success with their new staff and I was delighted to be able to assist them in the application process,” added Deputy McConalogue.
