Minister Charlie McConalogue today confirmed €100,000 for the Spraoi agus Spórt Family Centre.
Based in Inishowen, it will receive the money under Strand One of the Scaling up Fund.
The funds will be used to purchase a portacabin, which will allow for a permanent base to meet the needs of 40 children and young people with a disability.
The portacabin will also provide office space for three staff members.
Funding of €10,000 was also approved for the Liquid Therapy Company and €8,000 for Drimarone Development Company, both located in south Donegal.
Under the Scaling Up Fund, social enterprises will be supported in carrying out a number of capital projects, including the purchase of vehicles, as well as refurbishment and improvement works at their premises. The fund will also support a number of social enterprises in carrying out feasibility studies surrounding future projects.
Liquid Therapy will receive €10,000 for a feasibility study into the doubling of the current capacity to deliver inclusive ocean-based programmes and services and the geographic expansion of their services.
Drimarone Development Company will receive over €8k for a feasibility study examining development options for expansion of The Bluestack Hostel.
Commenting, Minister McConalogue said “Social enterprises are a really important part of the fabric of Donegal. I am delighted that Drimarone Development Company and Liquid Therapy have been recognised for the work they are doing and that Spraoi agus Spórt will have funding for their exciting and important project. Congrats to all involved in these enterprises.”
