Irish Local Development Network
The Irish Local Development Network (ILDN) is the representative body of Local Development Companies (LDCs) in Ireland. Our mission is to promote and support the work of our members in the areas of social inclusion and local and rural development.
Our membership currently stands at 48 companies with all members delivering the Social Inclusion Community Acitivation Programme (SICAP) and in rural contexts, the LEADER Rural Development Programme.
While these two programmes are the core programmes delivered by our members, there are a range of other initiatives at national and European level that companies leverage funding from to support and enhance the development of their communities.
