Offaly Local Development Company employs a strategy in community development that focuses on supporting communities to help themselves. Communities are facilitated to identify the priorities for their area – the local individual and collective needs. Each community commits its resources – sometimes facilities, sometimes finance, always people – to respond to local needs. A socially inclusive local action plan is agreed and the relevant agencies are engaged in the process. At all times the actions identified are owned and led by the local community – the people who live there and are committed to its future.

Community Development is extremely diverse. It has to be, because it’s about responding to peoples needs – both the individual and as a collective group trying to enhance the quality of life for all community members.
