It is a statutory body with membership drawn from Dublin City Council, State agencies, the Community and Voluntary sector and the private sector. The LCDC is responsible for the development, preparation, implementation, monitoring and review of the community elements of the Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP). It has a general role in coordinating local and community development programmes and reducing duplication.
The Dublin City LCDC also co-ordinates, plans and oversees the local and community development funding, namely the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP). It aims to tackle poverty, social exclusion and long-term unemployment through local engagement and partnership between disadvantaged individuals, community organisations, and public sector agencies.
Membership of the LCDC will be reviewed every three years to ensure it is relevant to the work of the committee.
