Supporting Monaghan Projects through our Workspace Community Fund

Supporting Monaghan Projects through our Workspace Community Fund

We recently reached out to a number of community and voluntary groups from the Monaghan area where we have two offices (Monaghan town and Carrickmacross) to offer financial support with their community projects.  Workspace Community Fund grants were awarded to six community projects: Workhouse Carrickmacross; Save Our Sons And Daughters (SOSAD) Carrickmacross; Tearmann Domestic Abuse Service; Dochas for Women; Failte Isteach; and, the Traveller Support Group.

We are part of The Workspace Group, one of Northern Ireland’s leading social enterprises.  The Workspace business model sees us operate commercial businesses which generate surpluses, part of which are used to fund projects in our local area such as our local recreation centre and After School Club. We also provide support directly to local community or voluntary groups to enable projects that otherwise just wouldn’t happen through our Workspace Community Fund. This reflects what Workspace is about since it was founded – helping the local community in a practical way

We are delighted to be able to offer this support to community and voluntary groups in areas where we have offices such as Monaghan and look forward to hearing how our support has helped local people.
