Celebrate Your Community with Love Where You Live – Leitrim
Time to nominate your community groups and heroes in Leitrim’s Love Where You Live Awards 2019.
Last year 108 nominations were received over eight categories of the awards which celebrate the voluntary and community effort that makes Leitrim a place to Love Where You Live.
Leitrim Public Participation Network is proud to sponsor the four awards that celebrate your achievements in making sure everyone in the community has the resources they need to participate in local life, regardless of ability, race, creed or age.
There are four community and voluntary awards:
- Community Resources – for groups that manage or promote resources for their community. These could be buildings or spaces – or any project that makes life better for the wider community.
- Social Inclusion – for groups that create opportunities for all to participate in local community life.
- Community Resilience – for groups of any size that address challenges with continued purpose and vision over time,
- Unsung Hero – celebrating the tireless individual in every community who makes an outstanding contribution to living locally.
