I welcome the announcement by Minister Heather Humphreys of almost €200k in Covid Stability funding for community and voluntary groups in Galway.

The funding for the 12 Galway groups includes €80k for Croí – the West of Ireland Cardiac and Stroke Foundation Company Ltd, €12k for Forbairt Maigh Cuilinn, €8,000 for Bád Tarrthála Charna & na nOileán and €2,000 for Clifden Area Renewal Company among others

Community and Voluntary groups have found it difficult to maintain services to their communities since the pandemic began and the Government is conscious that the sector needs continuing support.  This funding will go some way to filling the gap left by the difficulty in fundraising for these groups.

Groups within the Community and Voluntary sector do incredible work in their local areas across the county and we must ensure that they are in a position to continue their efforts through the Covid pandemic and beyond.
