Construction work is progressing well on the Fermanagh House extension – with the official opening planned for this Autumn. This morning Centre Manager Marilyn Quinn and Fermanagh Trust Director Lauri McCusker officially broke through between the extension and the current building.
Fermanagh House has proved to be an effective one stop shop for the community and voluntary sector, making services more accessible for local people. Currently the building hosts over 60 different organisations each month meeting the needs and demands of a wide range of interests. The extension will ensure we can continue to develop the space and facilities as well as bringing even more much needed services to Fermanagh. Income generated from the facility is utilised to support the Fermanagh Trust’s work to reach even more local groups and charities with grant making and development support.
The Fermanagh House extension which is one of the first to be funded through the Northern Ireland Executive Office Social Investment Fund programme, aimed at tackling poverty and deprivation through improved community based services and facilities.
A range of new services and facilities will be included in the new space including hot desks for regional voluntary organisations, new and fledgling community initiatives and enterprises.
