Network, Share Learning, Represent.

We've changed our name! Coming together for our first meeting of 2017 we agreed a shorter name of Community Participation Network (CPN) to help present our network.

 

In the context of local government reform, and the development of Public Participation Networks (PPNs), The Community Participation Network (CPN) was established in 2015 to help support the capacity of and direct representation of people with disabilities within local community structures. The CPN is made up of organisations, local partnerships, family resource centres, and local community development project companies of within the Limerick, Clare, Galway, Mayo and Roscommon Regions.
