The Waterford Public Participation Network (PPN) is a network of voluntary organisations across Waterford.

Waterford PPN empowers community voices by giving them a seat at the table with Waterford City & County Council 

Waterford PPN has more than 750 member groups 

WPPN is the main way that Waterford City & County Council and other formal bodies connect with communities in Waterford. When Waterford City & County Council require people to participate in consultations or sit on the committees that form local policies, such as Special Policy Committees (SPCs), etc it will call on WPPN to select these people from its members groups to represent the community..

Waterford PPN is independent of the Local Authority

(RCN) 20054717
