Fingal County Council’s Community Office has released a new video promoting the work of the Fingal Community Facilities Network. Set up in 2017, the network has a membership of 34 community facilities across Fingal.
Officially launching the video Mayor of Fingal Howard Mahony said:
“I am delighted to officially launch this video showcasing the Fingal Community Facilities Network. Since 2017 the Community Facilities Support Unit has worked closely with the members of the network from community centres across Fingal to meet the needs of these busy centres and enable them to continue to provide much-needed services to their communities. This video produced by the Fingal County Council Community Office provides stellar examples of such work and collaboration.
I have had the pleasure of visiting many of these community facilities during my time as Mayor of Fingal to see first-hand the great work they do and I wish the network and its members every continued success for the future.”
Viewers are taken on a visit to four member facilities from the communities of Luttrellstown, Baldoyle, Parslickstown and Huntstown and are given a unique insight into how the network was established and is managed.
Council representatives and centre managers explain the structure of the network and the supports and benefits that membership provides, such as staff training, financial support and regular masterclasses and breakfast meetings.
The video is the second in a series highlighting Fingal Community Facilities and work of the Community Facilities Support Unit which is a dedicated team within the Community Office, providing support and guidance to the network members throughout Fingal county.
