Mission and Purpose
- provides advice on planning issues for community groups and individuals;
- supports community involvement in Community Planning;
- facilitates community consultation and research; and
- provides advice to community building projects.
All of the advice we give is impartial, independent and confidential. Our work is underpinned by our commitment to inclusion, targeting need, equality, and equity.
The organisation was established in 1984 (under its previous name Community Technical Aid). It is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors who are elected annually from our membership.
Specializations and activities
We work with urban and rural community and voluntary groups across Northern Ireland in support of their work to influence and shape the planning and development of their communities. We also independently facilitate public and community consultation on planning and public services issues.
We currently have a membership of over 250 community and voluntary groups and networks from across the region. Membership is also open to individuals who support our aims and objectives.
