Following the official launch of construction work on the Fermanagh House extension we have been busy planning for the year ahead. Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness and soon to be new First Minister Arlene Foster, who launched the project, have been asked to pencil in a date in Autumn in their new Fermanagh Trust calendar to return to Fermanagh House when the building work is complete.
One of the first projects to be funded through the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister’s Social Investment Fund programme, there has been tremendous interest in the Fermanagh House extension since the official launch.
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 45 different user groups each month meeting the needs and demands of a wide range of interests.
The new space will also enable the Fermanagh Trust to continue to focus on creating linkages between locally based groups and voluntary/statutory service providers. The proposed project will provide a Centre which has at its core the linking of people and communities across Fermanagh with regional and voluntary sector service providers. The Centre will provide 800 square metres of space which will provide a base for regional charities and voluntary sector service providers in Fermanagh.
There will be many opportunities going forward in terms of space, hot-desking etc to help you reach people in the Fermanagh/Omagh area with your services. If you are interested in hearing more about how we can work with your organisation to deliver its services in Fermanagh either now or in the future please don’t hesitate to contact us – 026 66 320 210 / firstname.lastname@example.org
