We have been instrumental in the development and set-up of a number of social enterprises in the local area, in response to local need. We also provide support to community groups that want to set up as a social enterprise and administer the Social Enterprise Small Grants Scheme. Contact Eithne Gunning on 01 286 8266 to find out about supports to set up a social enterprise or to apply for the grants scheme (closing date 11th November 2019).
An example of a social enterprise we set up and run is:
