We’ve gathered a collection of news and information about a wide range of Covid-19 related subjects. Find out here how to help, what you can do to prevent the spread of the virus, info sheets for carers and parents, and what the current status is of the outbreak.
Fingal PPN and Fingal County Council’s Community Department will be documenting a diary of “good news stories”. These are stories that highlight the fantastic community spirit of Fingal in response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
We’ve mapped out organisations and volunteer groups in Fingal that have offered to help out in this crisis. So if you need help or support you can see if there is someone nearby to help you.
Our 5 Linkage Group networks work to advocate and influence policy on issues such as Climate Action, Housing, Planning and Transport.
We maintain our network of over 700 community groups through the Fingal Community County Register. We have a fully searchable online database.
PPN Membership is empowering and opens up opportunities for community groups to access training, funding, networking and our Linkage Groups.
What is the Fingal Public Participation Network?
Fingal Public Participation Network (PPN) is a network of community, voluntary, social inclusion and environmental organisations, working to build a better county for the community of Fingal.
Fingal PPN has more than 850 members and includes community-based groups, organisations, associations, clubs, societies and charities. Our members are based across Fingal in places such as Blanchardstown, Swords, Balbriggan, Lusk, Rush, Malahide, Howth and more.
We work to empower the community to be represented in decision making processes that impact citizens through representation on Council committees, consultation processes, policy submissions and more.
As a PPN, we provide space for community groups to grow and develop through our training supports. We also act as an information hub, keeping the community informed of relevant local issues, news, events, resources and supports.
