delighted to announce that Austin
Campbell has been appointed as joint CEO
of Robert Emmet CDP and South Inner City Community
Development Association (SICCDA), to
manage day to day operations of both organisations and lead a merger process to
form a single community organisation.
We hope that the merged organisation will be greater than the sum of it’s (great) parts and have capacity to not just ameliorate conditions of inequality and poverty existing in the South West Inner City but affect policy decisions that allow that poverty and inequality to exist at disproportionately high levels in the first place.
Part of the merger process involves the development of a plan for the merged organisation. As a grass roots community organisation we want as many stakeholders as possible to inform our strategy to ensure our ambition, services and philosophy are aligned with those of, and have capacity to deliver for, the community we serve
A link to our Partner Organisation Strategy Questionnaire is attached to this post. A copy of our separate Community Member Questionnaire is available on request. Physical copies of both are available from Robert Emmet CDP, 3 Usher Street and SICCDA, 90 Meath Street., Dublin 8.
Collated questionnaire results will be used to inform upcoming internal strategy meetings and ultimately the first five year strategy of our merged organisation.
It's very real stuff, please get involved and have your say.
Exciting times ahead.
