The Fermanagh Trust has awarded a grant of £1500 to Fermanagh Pride. This grant aims to support the group's mission of fostering inclusivity, building connections, and creating safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community in Fermanagh and its surrounding areas.

This grant award will support Fermanagh Pride’s plans to implement a comprehensive programme throughout 2024 focused on building support networks and facilitating meaningful connections within the LGBTQ+ community. This will include a series of accessible events and activities designed to promote friendship, understanding, and solidarity in a safe and respectful way.

Fermanagh Pride see a chance to expand upon the success of their recent Pride weekend in Enniskillen and utilise the insights gained and connections made to enrich September 2024 with a broader array of activities and events. They are also planning on participating in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Enniskillen, presenting an ideal platform to celebrate the community, forge new connections, and elevate awareness of Fermanagh Pride.

"We believe that by investing in initiatives like this, we can contribute to the creation of a more inclusive and supportive community for all residents of Fermanagh," said Sonya Johnston, Deputy Director of the Fermanagh Trust. "We are proud to support the important work of Fermanagh Pride and look forward to witnessing the positive impact on the lives of individuals throughout the region."

The Fermanagh Trust has since its inception supported over 500 voluntary and community charitable groups from throughout the County and its hinterland through grant-making function and developmental support programmes. This support is focused on facilitating these groups in their efforts to improve and promote the well-being of those who are disadvantaged and socially excluded from throughout our community.
