North Wall Development Programme

The North Wall Community Development Project (NWCDP) began life in 1985 as the North Wall Women's Centre and was awarded Community Development Project status in 2007, with a key focus on tackling social exclusion. 
Over the intervening three decades, the group has overseen the development of a purpose-built women's centre and currently employs some 50 full time and part time staff.
The NWCDP is now a key part of the social and economic infrastructure within the communities it serves, providing a range of critical services, including; childcare, community employment, work programme and skills training, healthy lifestyle courses.
Its also serves as a focal point for a range of related services and activities.
In late 2014, an unfortunate combination of circumstances saw the organisation suffer a serious of financial shortfall that, left unchecked, could have seriously undermined its capacity to continue operating.
The NWCDP turned to Clann Credo for the financial support required to weather worst of the financial storm into which it had been plunged.
Given the long-term prospects of the organisation and its critical role in the local community that support was forthcoming and the NWCDP is now on a far firmer financial footing.

""If we hadn’t of had the support from Clann Credo, we simply wouldn’t of been able to open the doors", Geraldine Comerford, General Manager, NWCDP"
