Community roadshows

South Antrim Community Network (SACN) is offering local community groups and small businesses help and advice.

During February and March, SACN will be bringing its tailored advice services to a number of areas across Newtownabbey, Antrim and Carrickfergus through a series of roadshows.

“If you are a community organisation, small business, social economy enterprise or individuals who could benefit from support from SACN, come along and take the opportunity to discuss how we, as a network, can support you,” a spokesperson said.

“You might need general help and advice, you may have an idea and need to find funding opportunities to start something new or support an existing project or business to progress, you may need assistance with grant applications, or be investigating networking or collaborative partnership.

“We can also assist with training needs, advice regarding organising events, meeting facilitation, help with risk assessments, or assistance in setting up or changing your constitution. We will be partnering with other organisations to offer the answers and help that you need.”

Anyone who would like to register their interest for one of the roadshow events must complete a pre-registration form.
