Clann Credo- Community Loan Finance begins ‘Learn, Inspire, Share’
Training series in Sligo-European Volunteering Capital.
Clann Credo, Ireland’s leading community finance provider, launched the first in the series of ‘Learn, Inspire, Share’ series of free Workshops in Sligo on 4th May. This is to acknowledge Sligo as the ‘European Volunteering Capital 2017’.
For over 20 years Clann Credo has been committed to supporting community-based volunteers in Ireland. It provides Community Loan Finance to help maximise the potential of projects.
In recognising the individual contribution community leaders and volunteers make, it does not ask them to provide personal guarantees for its loans.
The needs of these voluntary groups are unique and as well as supporting them financially, Clann Credo is offering volunteers and community leaders around the country training and support through the ‘Learn, Inspire, Share’ training series.
The workshops are designed to help the volunteers and staff who work on the projects that Clann Credo supports with Community Loan Finance.David Higgins, Easkey Community Council, Tracey Hannon, Social Finance Executive, Western Region, Clann Credo Community Loan Finance, Margaret Conlon, Easkey Community Council, and Paul O'Connor, South Sligo Community Park, at a Clann Credo, training workshop, at the Sligo Park Hotel.
