Culmore Community Partnership, based in Derry/Londonderry, is using a £487,475 grant to run their 'Four Corners Initiative' over the next four years. The project gives local people an opportunity to address priority issues, learn new skills, avail of essential services, and contribute to creating a dynamic and cohesive community. The project is creating a youth forum for local young people, a weekly programme for the over 50's, and are celebrating Culmore's history and current diversity through the arts and various events. The group are also using the funding to connect local people to essential rural services, including advice on pensions and benefits, health and well-being checks, training and employment assistance. The project helps to reduce isolation in the community by bringing local people together to promote a better quality of life through social opportunities and activities.
