Annual Activity Report 2017

Home / News / Annual Activity Report 2017

2017 has been another very successful year for Fingal Leader Partnership.
The Dublin Rural LEADER programme got off to a very strong start with project targets
being met and, in some cases, exceeded. The Tús Programe has seen the successful
placement of over 200 participants with over 130 participating non-profit organisations,
assisting them to deliver much needed services for our local communities.
The Care and Repair and the new Computer Home Support services operated under the
Tús programme continues to go from strength to strength. The Jobs Club ensured that
over half of all clients during the year either successfully regained employment or went
on to further education. 2017 also saw the very successful move to our new offices and
the integration of services into our new premises at DSV House in Swords Business Park.
In February 2017 we appointed our new CEO, Dr. Chris O’Malley who, over the past
year, has been successfully planning, formulating and managing the change process
within the company. On behalf of the board I would like to take this opportunity to
thank him for his guidance, direction, hard work and commitment to the company since
his appointment.
I would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our Deputy CEO, Phil Moore,
for her hard work and dedication to the company over the past number of years. Her
knowledge and experience of the various programmes undertaken by the company
during that time has been invaluable. Thanks also to the various teams that deliver the
programmes and make it all happen on a day to day basis.
Finally, I want to acknowledge the great work being done at board level and to thank my
fellow directors for their contribution and commitment during the year.
We look forward to continuing the great work that has been achieved to date and look
forward to continuing to build a stronger and more dynamic company in 2018 and
Chris Harmon
