There are three core aims to the project, these are:
- To develop effective networks between like organisations in Athy and encourage networking with similar groups in Rhyl.
- To provide support for people wishing to start-up their own business and for existing businesses that wish to develop their enterprise.
- To include under-represented groups in a broader range of activities and assist them to fully participate in the local economy.
This presents significant opportunities for the communities of Athy and Rhyl to participate in local and cross border initiatives designed to develop the local economies of the two towns.
For example, businesses in Athy can use the networks established by the project staff to develop new markets in north Wales and the UK for their products or services. Additionally, they can share the benefits and resources by participating in a cross border network.
