Founded in 1982, we are a community development organisation based in The Liberties in Dublin’s South Inner City. SICCDA, working with a board made up of local residents, along with volunteers from the local community, is committed to and actively involved in tackling the social, educational, health, economic, and environmental problems facing the community.
SICCDA’s mission is to help create and maintain a community where people, particularly those who historically have been most excluded, feel valued, welcomed, and useful.
To ensure the social and economic development of The Liberties. SICCDA understands social inclusion to be a planned process whereby people and communities are afforded opportunities to acquire the same status, power, and privileges that so many others in our society take for granted. So it is that – in conjunction with local people – SICCDA designs and initiates projects which cater for the social, economic, cultural, and educational needs of the broader community.
Our ongoing activity
We support people in the community by providing information, advice, skills training, education support, and community services.
