Strengthening Your Funding Applications
Increasingly, funders are looking for you to supply evidence and identification of need to support your funding application. This can be an onerous task for community groups and volunteers and can often deter groups from applying for critical funding. Sligo PPN are working to support groups in their funding efforts by compiling some local information that will help you to strengthen your application and, more importantly, save you time to get on with the more important aspects of running your group.
Sligo LECP is the 6 year Local Economic and Community Plan for the county. The purpose of the plan is to promote economic and community development. In the drawing up of the plan extensive consultation and socio-economic analysis was undertaken. This work highlights the key priorities identified by the people of Sligo as well as setting out a core development vision for the county based on local data sets. Sligo PPN has extracted some of the core information from this document that we feel might be of help to you. Click Here for Summary of Sligo LECP Consultation Information and Local Area Analysis
