Sligo PPN 2020 & 2021 Needs Analysis
Sligo PPN works to ensure that it’s core supports respond directly to the needs of the community sector. Each year we undertake a needs analysis so that we can ensure our annual work plan reflects changing and emerging community needs. We also share these findings with key partners who are in a position to respond directly.
