Leitrim Development Company is coordinating Leitrim Social Inclusion Awareness Week which takes place on the week of October 18-22.
The theme for this year is ‘Inclusion for All’. This week will bring together a range of agencies including Mohill Family Support Centre, North Leitrim Women’s Centre, Breffni FRC and Leitrim Co Council who will be hosting events during the week.
The week gives us the opportunity to shine a light on the day to day work done by the public and community sector in Leitrim to reduce social exclusion, and to reflect on the challenges of those who experience discrimination, poverty and racism in our county.
We want this week to start the conversation on inclusion for all, so please get involved and make Leitrim a just county for everyone every week of the year.
