For the past number of years Westmeath County Council has distributed in the region of €450,000 perannum to Community & Voluntary groups in the form of Awards and Grants. This is because the Council recognise the work that the Community & Voluntary sector carry out on a day to day basis and believes that this grouping is one of the most important sectors in the county as they contribute to the quality of life of all citizens.
