You may be surprised to learn that the Europe for Citizens Programme funds town twinning projects. Grants of up to €25,000 are available and community groups, not just local authorities, can apply. Twinning can involve more than just two towns and now many projects involve community actors, volunteers and marginalised groups.
The Wheel is running two information sessions on Tuesday 26 April 2016 and Wednesday 11 May in Dublin and Cork respectively. Our Spotlight on Town Twinning events will explore old and new town twinning ideas, provide funding advice and share stories of success. Read more about our events and book places here.
