We are making a plan and we need your help- Clare PPN draft strategic plan 2018- 2021

 

Clare PPN Draft Strategic Plan 2018- 2021 – call for input from our members:

Clare PPN is inviting all member groups to read and comment on our draft strategic plan. We welcome any views opinions or thoughts on anything you would like to see included in the plan. A strategic plan is what we use to steer the organisation- so it doesn’t list every task or event or action we might carry out on a week to week basis. Details and particular activities are included in our annual work plan which we work out each year after our plenary meetings. This longer term strategic plan helps us to make sure we have a clear vision and mission statement so we can ensure that we are concentrating on our remit and responsibilities as a public participation network.

You can read our plan here: Strategic plan

We would like to ask you our members if there is anything you would like added to it, and if it reads clearly and reflects what you would want from your public participation network.  Please have a read and you can send any thoughts in an email to admin@clareppn.ie on or before the 26th June 2018 at 5pm.

  • Bring a more coherent approach to the implementation of local and community development programmes and interventions, seeking to ensure an integrated approach to local community and local development services between providers and delivery structures
  • Drive meaningful citizen and community engagement in the scoping, planning, delivery and evaluation of local and community development programmes
  • Ensure a more efficient administration of local and community programmes and delivery structures, the appropriate matching of resources to priorities and the achievement of value-for-money in the delivery and governance of programmes and the management of local delivery arrangements

  • Explore and pursue opportunities for additional funding resources for the area, whether Exchequer, EU, private or other sources

 

Elaine D’Alton

The Clare Women’s Network is part of the National Collective of Community Based Women’s Networks (NCCWN) and offers support for women to enhance their quality of life on an individual and group basis especially women experiencing social and economic exclusion and isolation.

I am the Project Coordinator of the Clare Women’s Network and have been nominated by CWN to go forward as the representative to LCDC. I have worked across many issues relating to feminism and gender equality in my twenty five years of experience of working within a community development setting in a variety of roles.

I am committed to addressing the many issues facing women in today’s political, social, economic and cultural landscape. I am committed to promoting and forwarding recommendations and guidance as identified by women in Clare on how best to address and rectify the obstacles and barriers to their full participation.  I believe representation specifically pertaining to the needs of women is an imperative

If you haven’t already committed your vote to a particular candidate, I ask you to bring this note to the attention of your group and give consideration to casting your vote for me. It is my intention, if elected to the secretariat, to use the Clare Public Participation Network as a vehicle to bring the concerns of women’s and other marginalised groups in the county to the forefront of the local and national policy debate.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
