  • Provision of information on local opportunities and community focused events;
  • Community based work placements;
  • Networking and information events;
  • Supports, mentoring and training for communities wishing to develop community-led businesses

  • Facilitation of community socio-economic action planning for communities and neighbourhoods

These services are supported through a range of Programmes delivered by Ballyhoura Development.

Community Inclusion Toolkit

This Community Inclusion Toolkit is presented as a practical aid to community groups in the Ballyhoura area. Its purpose is to help groups to include in their activities and structures as many people as possible, drawn from the widest possible range of backgrounds and circumstances.

The development of the toolkit has been a joint undertaking by Ballyhoura Development and three local community organisations: ACM, Castleconnell, Kilmallock and District Community Council, and Mitchelstown Community Council.
