Want to make a difference to your community? Are you passionate and interested in creating social change? Would financial assistance help? If so, Omagh Enterprise wants to hear from you.

We are seeking applications from people who are 16+, live in the West and have an idea for a venture that could deliver a positive social impact.

We will provide funding along with one to one support from an Award Manager.

To be eligible your idea must:

  • Have a real social impact

Ideas and ventures are not eligible for an Award if they:

  • Are part of your paid employment

  • Involve activities outside of the law or against public policy, or anything that encourages ethnic, religious or commercial disharmony
  • Involve employing people other than yourself to carry out most of the work
