Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is developing a new Community Development Strategy and we’d like to hear from you!

The Strategy will guide how we will support community development in the borough over the next 3 years, both directly through funding for local groups, mentoring, training and officer support as well as by working with other partners.

If you are involved with a community or voluntary organisation, whether it’s a geographical community, a community of interest or an issues based group, or if you have an interest in community development, then we would like to hear your views to help us develop a draft Strategy.  

You can get involved in the first stage of our consultation by attending one of our 8 engagement workshops:


Or if you would like to meet directly with a member of the Community Development team please get in touch and we can arrange to meet with your organisation.

For further information and to register to attend one of the workshops please email:  or tel: 028 7034 7044.


Does your group organise a community festival or fun day? 

Would you like some practical information and tips on everything you need to know to organise and manage your event?
Council has launched an updated Guide for the Planning and Organisation of Community Festivals and other Events.  The Guide, which is aimed at assisting voluntary groups who are organising community events, has been updated to take account of new legislation and provides useful information, such as what permissions and licences are needed, food safety, marketing, dealing with the media, risk assessments and a whole range of other issues.
The Guide includes templates and useful contact details and is available in hard copy version by request or it can be accessed by clicking here.
Please contact us at  if you would like the Guide emailed directly to you or if you would like a hard copy.
