This Project was started by a committee of twelve people from Croaghan Heights.Who were keen to work towards making Lifford a better place to live.
In 1992 the project was included in the National Community Development Programme
New premises were obtained and a part-time community worker and administrator were employed
The Community Employment Scheme started in the Centre 22 years ago
Environmental Work is carried out by the environmental workers supporting local groups and clubs:
27 workers provide service to
- Lifford Celtic
- Croaghan Heights
- Lifford Environmental Group
- Select vestry of Clonleigh Parish Church
The centre had to extend the building in order to accommodate the increasing services on offer
We began running Full time & Part time Community education Classes
We opened our Astro Turf facility
The ABC Childcare Centre came next and is going from strength to strength
The Centre decided to go it alone as an independent body.
We opted out of National Community Development Project which meant we had to become self sufficient with out core funding
