Ferrybank Community Development Group

The FCDG formed in 2004 when local residents from both Waterford and Kilkenny areas came together to work toward achieving change within their community following a number of needs being identified.  The committee has undertaken training on committee skills, structures, equality, etc. to support us in creating a strong voice within the community.  We have also undertaken training in community development and in gaining an understanding of the practices of community development which has strengthened our community development work within the area.

Aims and Objectives

--To create a vibrant community inclusive of all our residents and, through planning and participation, improve the quality of life.

--To ensure the active participation of those socially excluded and develop the capacity to participate, motivate and lead within the community.

--That individuals and groups within the Ferrybank area will have confidence in shaping the decisions that impact on their lives.
