3 public consultation sessions will be held on 22nd October (7.30pm Toome House), 4th November (7.30pm Ballyclare Town Hall) & 5th November (10am Antrim Civic Centre) to prepare the Strategy for the new Rural Development Programme.
The Rural Development Council (RDC) and Advantage are partners in the delivery of an exciting opportunity within Northern Ireland- the ‘Rural Youth Entrepreneurship’ (RYE) programme. Designed to raise awareness of self-employment as an option, the programme supports 16 to 30 year olds to identify business ideas and consider if self-employment could work for them.
Welcome From The Chair
Welcome to the GROW website
GROW South Antrim (Generating Rural Opportunities Within South Antrim) has been set up to manage and deliver funding under the Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme across rural South Antrim.
GROW is currently preparing for the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which will be delivered across the rural areas of Antrim and Newtownabbey. We will soon have a strategy in place and further details of what will be available will be added to the website in due course.
The Rural Development Programme is an excellent opportunity for rural communities and enterprises to improve, expand or diversify and we would encourage anyone who has a development idea to explore the website for more information or to get in touch with us.
