We are delighted to spotlight the work of the Irish Blue Cross in this week’s Bulletin, in the Members’ Spotlight section of our website. We have shared some information about this group alongside a short video about their work. There is also a spotlight on another Member Group called Tog Hackerspace, and you can read more about them and watch their short film here.
Dublin City PPN has registered over 100 new Member Groups in 2023 and you can see who else is in the network in our Members Directory. You can also find your unique PPN Registration number in this directory if you are applying for grants and funding from Dublin City Council. If your Member Group is not on the website, this could be because you didn’t re-register, and this can easily be solved with an email to Ruth or Rachel.
One of our newest Member Groups is Aisteach.
Aisteach’s goal is to provide community-led housing within the LGBTQIA+ community. Aisteach is hosting a Quiz and Raffle at Street 66 on 19 April, from 7.00pm Further information here.
To all our new members, we say “Welcome” and we hope to meet you at one of our PPN events very soon.
