Galway Rural Development - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

At GRD, we have undertaken all recommended precautions in relation to the health and safety of our staff, scheme participants, students, volunteers, and partners and we will continue to follow HSE guidance.

Our stakeholders can be assured that we are continuing to support essential services to meet the current challenge – these range from community efforts, to meals on wheels, to advice / support.

We also have contingency plans in place to ensure that we are operating as normally as possible. Many of our staff are in the office and we are operating on a one person per room basis for social distancing.

Many of our staff are also working remotely and all can be contacted via email or mobile-phone with any queries. We will get through this challenging period together. Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy.

Welcome to the Galway Rural Development website. Galway Rural Development, through the programmes we administer, will continue to work along with other agencies, groups and individuals around the county to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our area. We especially wish to work with those who are most in need of assistance, to provide real opportunities for people to gain significant improvements for themselves and their communities throughout rural Galway.
