Community GROUPS

KRC’s work with Local Community Groups (LCGs) is supported under Goal 1 of the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018 – 2022.  Goal 1 is to support communities and target groups to engage with relevant stakeholders in identifying and addressing social exclusion and equality issues, developing the capacity of Local Community Groups, and creating more sustainable communities.  KRC supports 11 LCGs including the Tipperary Resident’s Network, Tipperary Men’s Shed, Tipperary Feminist Network, Lone Parent’s Group and Parent & Toddlers Group. 

Work carried out in support of LCGs promotes stronger community engagement and stronger communities.  It contributes to an increased sense of community within the relevant area or community of interest.  Using community development, bottom-up approaches we provide direct supports to local communities while also developing the capacity of LCGs which represent or work within disadvantaged communities and target groups.

organic garden

For 20 years KRC has dedicated itself to the upkeep of one of the best examples of a town-centred certified Organic Garden. The garden hosts a Community Allotment Programme which is available, with organic horticulture training, to members of disadvantaged communities in the surrounding area. The Garden is used by a number of community, social and horticulture groups and for adult education and training purposes. It is only with the wonderful contribution of Volunteers that the garden continues to thrive and has become the jewel of Knockanrawley Resource Centre and a haven of peace and beauty with Tipperary Town.
