DHR News | 13th February 2015

This might be of interest to some of our clients; Minister Alan Kelly recently announced the beginning of a public consultation process on the drafting of a framework for Local and Community Development.

The policy seeks to reflect:

  • the evolution of local and community development in Ireland to date;
  • the reality of local and community development structures and their operation;
  • the State’s relationship with the local and community development sectors and the funding programmes which are supported by the State;
  • the need to support citizens and communities in challenging economic times;
