Welcome to the Ballybane Taskforce
The Ballybane Taskforce is a newly established group of stakeholders working together to promote and support the area of Ballybane. The Taskforce is currently made up of members from the following organisations: SCCUL Enterprises, Galway City Partnership, Galway City Council, Galway Sports Partnership, St Brigid’s Pastoral Team, An Garda Síochána, Foróige, GRETB, Galway Traveller Movement, Ballybane Library, Túsla, Youthwork Ireland Galway, the Local Employment Service, Ballybrit Mosque, the Western Region Drug & Alcohol Taskforce and Ballybane Community Resource Centre. We have just begun a process of building the membership of the Taskforce and we are doing this by inviting new membership from two additional strands:
- Representatives from thematic groups
- Community representatives from geographic areas
Two representatives will be appointed to the Taskforce from the following thematic groups:
a) Young people,
b) Older people,
c) New communities,
Current stakeholders from within the Taskforce will oversee the thematic appointments.
Based on results which have emerged from a survey carried out in the community in early 2017, the Taskforce proposes to focus on five thematic areas in its first year of operation. These are youth, environment, communications, adult engagement and community facilities. Working groups will be set up under each of these themes, and will develop a strategy to guide their work.
We are currently building our website and it will be available shortly. For further information please contact Imelda Gormally, Galway City Partnership on 091-768305 / 086-0227821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
