Cross Border Opportunities Project
Leitrim County Development Board with Fermanagh Local Strategy Partnership
The Cross Border Opportunities project is a partnership between Leitrim County Development Board and Fermanagh Local Strategy Partnership. Supported by Interreg llla Programme for Ireland/Northern Ireland, it brings community groups and agencies from Fermanagh and Leitrim together to network and form partnerships.
The project fosters new partnerships, helps in the design of projects, sources funding agencies and programmes and facilitates groups wishing to apply for funding. The project commenced in January 2005 and has facilitated over 30 groups to identify cross-border partners and work to strengthen these partnerships and plan work that they could do together. All participating partnerships have engaged on a programme of facilitated meetings, cross-border events such as seminars, outings or festivals and six have applied for funding for cross-border projects. This website is designed to be a resource to any community group or agency interested in establishing a cross-border partnership or in designing a cross-border project, especially between Fermanagh and Leitrim.
