West Cork Development Partnership provides a range of supports to local community groups who have identified an issue or a common purpose and have come together to address the issue or to put in place a peer support group.
Groups that are currently being supported at the Resource Centre cover a range of issues including addiction, mental health issues, childcare supports, bereavement, parenting, counselling, youth issues, positive health, we also have a group who share hints and tips on growing veg at home.
Supports offered to groups include: meeting space, access to publicity through our Community Newsletter, advice on starting and running a group, financial management and back up facilities i.e. use of computer, photocopier etc.
