Community Development Support

Capacity building support is targeted at Community Associations operating in the Newry city area. This work is the mainstay of the CCG’s targeting social need in local communities and is a key step in developing a community infrastructure throughout Newry and Mourne that is capable of delivering the vibrant and confident civic society that our area needs and deserves. This work is largely funded by the DSD under its Neighbourhood Renewal Programme and under the Community Investment Fund Programme.
