Following on from their Autumn Training Programme, Fingal PPN are providing valuable training supports to groups which will contribute to strong communities” She encouraged all to attend the sessions.

The programme comprises of 6 FREE Information and Training events over the coming months, commencing on Tuesday 28th February with Social Media for Community Groups in the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown. “ We are very excited about our Programme as the training is practical and we feel this programme has something for all groups from Funding, Communication for Community Groups, Promoting and Increasing new members, Information on the NEW Fingal Development Plan and an Opportunity to feed into the Fingal Library Development Plan” explained Sinead Wiley, Resource Worker Fingal PPN.
