Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development, Charities and Integration, Joe O’Brien TD, has launched a new national awareness campaign to encourage community groups to join their local Public Participation Networks (PPN).
Public Participation Networks allow local authorities to connect with community groups around the country and give people a greater say in local government decisions that affect their communities.
Each county and city in Ireland has its own PPN and more than 18,000 community and voluntary groups are currently members.
