With the support of Elevate, Omagh Comhaltas created a project to develop their music and dance activities in the local community, offering equal access to anyone from young people to the older population. They aimed to promote friendship, social inclusion and personal development through music and dance in a way that builds self-esteem and encourages people to get involved.  After engaging with the local community, several relevant information sources were developed.
