Community and Voluntary Register
The Community and Culture Service in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is currently preparing an up to date central register of all the Community and Voluntary groups within the Borough.
We will regularly email information to local organisations about our funding programmes, events, consultations, external funding opportunities, and anything else that we feel will be useful to your organisation.
There is a section about consent to use and share the details of your organisation; we will not share your details unless you give us permission to do so. You may find it useful to set up a generic e-mail for your organisation if you don’t already have one.
