Southside Partnership is a well-established local development company operating in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, County Dublin. We work with a variety of agencies and organisations so that individuals, groups and communities can find ways to bring about positive change and create more hopeful prospects for people who experience unemployment, poverty and social exclusion.
Established in 1996, the Partnership has adapted and changed over the years, but we have continually stayed true to our ethos of working in partnership with others to support the people and communities who are in some way marginalised in our society. We are now operating in a new local government landscape, a changed funding environment and we have to deal with the challenges that recent years of austerity have presented for the communities that we serve.
However, the Partnership’s long experience of involving people and groups in discovering their own solutions is still at the centre of how our supports are developed and delivered. We continue to oversee a wide range of interconnected programmes and hosted projects that are tailored to the needs of those whom we support.
