PPN Bulletin

We are very sad to say goodbye to Anne Talbot of Bushy Park Market, who has stepped down from her role on the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) this week.  We wish Anne all the best and thank her for her time, experience, and enthusiasm.

This leaves Anne’s seat vacant, and we would welcome nominations from member organisations from the Voluntary and Community Pillar.  Further information about the role, responsibilities and nominations process can be found here.

Please save the date of 25 November for the Dublin City PPN Plenary.  The Lord Mayor Alison Gilliland will make the opening remarks, Ellenora Lynch will facilitate group discussions with regards to the 5 Year Strategic Plan, and we will end the event with film, music and poetry!  Further information will soon be updated here.

Your Finance Representative, Philip O’Callaghan of South Georgian Core Resident’s Association was interviewed by John Healy on NearFM’s Northside Today programme on Wednesday, and you can listen back here.  Philip is keen to start a Finance Linkage group, or at least speak to people who are interested in this area, so please get in touch if you would like to reach out to Philip about his work with the SPC.

If you are interested in joining our Migrant Thematic Group, please contact Beatriz.

Ernie Beggs, from the Secretariat, would like to update the PPN that he attended the commencement of the Paul Woodward Community Music and PPN Film project at the Meeting Place Club, last Friday on 01 October.

Dublin City Council is inviting submissions from groups who would like to be involved in their Integration and Inclusion week from 8 – 12 November.  Ideas for the week of activities should be sent by 15 October and you can access the hub and update your ideas here.

For more information about the St. Patrick’s Festival and Tik Tok Creative Fund go here.

Maria Flanagan, of An Cosán would like to remind the PPN about SCOPE, which is a FREE online training programme that provides training in Governance, Fundraising, Risk Management, Financial Management and Communications.  Find out more about these excellent FREE resources for your organisation here.

You can access a wide range of FREE training for you and other members of your organisations with The Wheel, Carmichael, and  Volunteer Ireland  If you don’t have time to do the training sessions, perhaps ask one of your volunteers to do it and share it with you afterwards! 

If you would like to have volunteers working with you, get in touch with Dublin City Volunteer Centre for supports and services in this area.  You can find out what volunteering roles are available now, or how to recruit volunteers to your programme here

If you can, please follow us on social media, follow our website updates, and please share this bulletin with other people in your organisations and networks.  Please contact Ruth on or Beatriz on if you have any suggestions, questions, comments or advice.
