Cookstown and Western Shores Area Network (CWSAN) is a community umbrella organisation which was formed in 1996 to represent and support the interests of community groups within the rural areas of Cookstown District and along the Western Shores of Lough Neagh. Since 2014 CWSAN has partnered with COSTA to ensure coverage for all of rural Mid-Ulster. We also operate an outreach office from the Rainey Centre, Magherafelt. The network aims to co-ordinate the activities of groups in the area through a range of support measures which include training, facilitation, information access, brokerage and consultation.
