An allocation of over €140,000 in funding from the Dormant Accounts Fund has been made to 13 Donegal community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises, experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“These organisations provide services in a diverse range of areas including disability services, health and wellbeing services, community supports, active retirement and elder care services as well as a range of social services and supports for disadvantaged individuals and communities,” he added.
