Limerick City Community Development Project (CDP) is a non-profit community development organisation. Established in 2010 bringing together the expertise and experience of 15 years of community development work in Moyross, Our Lady of Lourdes, St Mary’s, St. Munchin’s and Southill. Our work is underpinned by community development principles, which are rights-based and delivered through consultation, participation, collective action, social justice, empowerment and equality.
The mission of the Limerick City CDP is to facititate commuities to identify their key needs and solutions in relation to educational, social, health, and economic opportunities in order to improve the quality of life of those experiencing social and economic disadvantage.
Limerick City CDP is part of a consortium, with PAUL Partnership as lead agency, who deliver the Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme (SICAP) funded by the Dept. of Rural and Community Development. The project is also funded under the preventative pillar of the National Drugs Strategy and hosts the Limerick Drugs Education and Preventation Strategy (DEPS). Under both programmes Limerick City CDP works to meet the needs of communities experiencing greatest levels of socio- economic disadvantage and social exclusion.
