In 2020, Ballyhoura Development, a community-led local development company, managed €4.2m of funding to support communities, individuals and businesses across the Ballyhoura area. All services delivered were in line with the organisations vision and mission to support more inclusive and sustainable communities and a diversified economy.
After a year that has challenged our communities, residents and businesses on every level, our belief in the power of people to come together and lead is stronger than ever. Ballyhoura Development reacted and adapted quickly to engage and support community groups to respond positively to the impact of Covid-19 in their communities, while also providing additional family and individual supports in relation to food distribution, online learning and employment.
