Community Platform - Community Platform Structure

Community Platform Structure

A small amount of funding is provided by the Department of Community, Rural & Gaeltacht Affairs under the Scheme for Social Partnership related funding for the Community & Voluntary sector.

The Community Platform will seek to access funding from other sources to cover the costs associated with implementing elements of the strategic plan.

Staff

The Community Platform currently does not employ any staff.

Steering Group

There is currently an ad-hoc ‘action plan steering group’ made up of 7 members including the resource worker.

The role of this group is to:

  • Advise the worker in relation to operational issues and key strategies/policies to be progressed.

  • Act as an ‘executive arm’ of the Platform, mandated to make (certain?) decisions for the Platform where insufficient time exists for normal Platform decision-making processes.

Secretariat

When the Platform was established there was a decision taken not to set up the Platform as an independent legal structure. Instead the European Anti-Poverty Network Ireland,which is a member of the Community Platform, acts as secretariat to the Community Platform and manages all legal and financial aspects of the structure. Previously this role was carried out by the  Community Workers' Co-operative,
