LEADER funding provides vital investment for community facilities, and is largely focused on supporting those in our rural communities.

“It is essential that the upkeep of facilities, like Balscadden Community Hall, is supported by Government in order to ensure local residents have amenities they both require and deserve. The LEADER investment announced for the replacement of the floor within Balscadden Community Hall represents 75% funding for the total cost of the project.

“It is important, in the context of LEADER funding to also acknowledge the work undertaken by local residents and community groups throughout the North County in terms of their work to support local residents and to maintain and improve community facilities and amenities.”
