PPN Bulletin

Good morning.

We hope everyone is having a good summer and that you are all well and taking care.  Just a few updates this week; and please get in touch if you would like us to include your news and information, in next week’s Bulletin.

Re-registrations of PPN Member Groups

The Department of Rural and Community Development encourages all PPNs across the country, to re-register all its members every two years.  This is to make sure that our information on our Members’ Directory is as accurate as it can be.  Due to the high amount of data in Dublin City PPN, last year we re-registered about half our members, and this year we are trying to re-register the other half. A few weeks ago, Beatriz sent an email to about 500 primary contacts, with a very easy form to fill in.

If you can, please fill out that short form, and send it back to her, so that our database is as good as it can be.  We really appreciate your help on this:  Beatriz’s email is

Mazars Structural Review of the PPN.

Many of you will remember the Mazar’s structural review of the PPN last year, and you can read their report here.  The Department of Rural and Community Development are now asking for PPNs to send a written response to this report to them, by 30th August.  Social Justice Ireland, the National PPN resource and support workers and the Local Authorities are preparing their responses, and if you would like to add your response (to this report), please email Ruth with your comments on
