About Us - Many people in the county will be familiar with the four organisations which came together in 2009 to form Clare Local Development Company (Ennis West Partners, Rural Resource Development, Eirí Córca Baiscinn and part of Obair Newmarket-on-Fergus). In 2011, East Clare Community Support and part of Ennis CDP also merged with CLDC.
The aim of this bigger organisation is to deliver as many services and supports as possible to the people and communities of Co. Clare. A wide range of needs are being addressed through the local development services we deliver, including training, work placement, grants and advice.
Currently the company employs over 200 people on a wide range of programs and schemes including the LEADER Program, Local Community Development Program, Local Training Initiatives, Rural Social Scheme, Community Employment Scheme and Rural Recreation Project and Tús.
Vision - Our vision for Co. Clare is an enterprising county of inclusive and vibrant communities.
Our Mission - The mission of CLDC is to promote and deliver supports and services for social inclusion, enterprise, rural and community development, both from our own resources and in collaboration with other agencies.
Our Services - We provide a diverse range of supports and services to community and voluntary groups, social inclusion target groups, small businesses, farm families and potential entrepreneurs. Some of our services are available throughout the county, whilst others are limited to specific geographical areas. We collaborate with a wide range of local organisations in the delivery of our services.
Thank you to all who attended the showcase of all that community led development has achieved in County Clare.
Following from this event we urge you to join our lobby to Minister Hogan and our Clare TD's and Senators to ensure that community-led development remains in its current format under the guidance of CLDC.
