Mayo Community Futures - Your Chance To Take Part

Date: 09-05-2023

Mayo Community Futures is a programme which assists communities to prepare and co-ordinate their own 5-year Action Plan.  South West Mayo Development Company (SWMDC) is the host organisation for the Mayo Community futures team on behalf of Mayo County Council.

Mayo Community Futures is a bottom up, community led process which gives all members of the community the opportunity to feed into the development of a Community Action Plan for their area.  Community Futures aims to:

  • Assist communities prepare Community Action Plans
  • Encourage people to become active in their communities
  • Strengthen and develop local community organisations
  • Enable communities to identify and progress priority projects and actions
  • Enable communities to effectively represent their interests at local, County and National level

The Community Action Plan strengthens a community’s ability to represent themselves and serves as a useful guide to public agencies to feed into funding applications and strategic planning in the County.

The programme is managed by a partnership of community-based organisations and agencies who are all committed to supporting communities in having a say in their own future.

To date, 30 communities in the County have taken part in the programme.
