Cork City Council Scouting/Guides Small Capital Grants Scheme 2017

Cork City Council recognises the important contribution made by the scouting and girl-guide movements in Cork City, encouraging the development of children and young people from the age of five/six to reach their full potential. This non formal education, learning through fun, adventure and discovery provides an invaluable resource and opportunity for the City’s young people on an ongoing basis.
