Inishowen Development Partnership’s support for Community Groups aims to encourage the sustainability of our area, promote and increase participation of the Community & Voluntary sector and develop opportunities through community development approaches.  

Our community development work aims to promote participation and representation of the community and voluntary sector and to ensure that the most disadvantaged in the local community are involved and included in projects that are aimed at them. An ongoing programme of training and mentoring to groups is an integral part of this support. Courses are provided on relevant topics such as project/programme design and community development. Inishowen Development Partnership also provides mentoring support to groups as they work to implement projects.

The staff team of IDP also work collaboratively with other organisations such as the SIM, Age Alliance, Donegal Travellers Project, Tusla, Jigsaw, Foroige, DYS, the HSE, Moville Family Resource Centre, Inishowen Family Action Network and Parentstop to name a few.
