Dublin City Local Community Development Committee

The Dublin City Local Community Development Committee was established in July 2014, in line with Government policy.  It is made up of representatives from Dublin City Council, other State agencies and social and economic partners (for a list of members please see below).  Support for the LCDC is provided by the Community and Social Development section in Dublin City Council.

The key functions of the LCDC include:

  • The preparation and implementation of the community element of the Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan 2016 – 2021
  • Bringing a more joined-up approach to local and community development activity in the City
  • Co-ordinating and monitoring the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP)

The Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan 2016 – 2021 (LECP) was adopted by the Dublin City Council in December 2015. 

The LECP is made up of two documents:

  • A six-year strategy document setting out the 12 high-level goals for the lifetime of the Plan
  • An Action Plan that will be up-dated annually

For further information on, or a copy of, the Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan 2016 – 2021 please go to www.dublincity.ie\lecp  or email lecp@dublincity.ie

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) aims to tackle poverty, social exclusion and unemployment through local engagement and partnership between individuals, community organisations and public sector agencies. 

It is funded nationally by the Irish Government and co-funded by the European Union.  It is delivered in five separate areas across Dublin City by five different organisations and is monitored by the Local Community Development Committee.
