What is the Community Forum?
The Community Forum was set up in 2001 to ensure that the voice of the community and voluntary sector is represented in the economic, social and cultural development of the county. It is a non political organisation that enables community and voluntary organisations across the county to voice issues and concerns relating to the development of their communities. It consists of a network of groups and organisations, which aims to build linkages, consult and be consulted on topics relating to the development of County Waterford. It acts as a platform for exchanging information, sharing experience and working collectively.
340+ Registered Member Groups make up this network, representing extensive interests. All eligible community, voluntary and local development groups are invited to register as members of the Community Forum in their Electoral Area.
