Welcome to our website. I hope you take the time to browse through our site and familiarise yourself with the aims, objectives and activities of The Resurgam Community Development Trust.

The Resurgam Trust was incorporated on the 11th January 2011 and as a Development Trust is a member of the Development Trusts Association Northern Ireland based in Laganview Enterprise Centre in the Old Warren Estate, Lisburn, the Resurgam Trust works with community-based organisations throughout the Greater Lisburn area. We are a support organisation with an individual membership in excess of 1,000, 32 community-based groups, and six social enterprises providing employment for over 100 members of the community.

The health and well being of our community lies at the heart of our ethos. We act as a lobbyist on behalf of our community to ensure that the educational attainment levels of our young people are raised, and that further educational and training opportunities are available for people of all ages to increase their employability levels.

I hope the information you find here gives you a better understanding of our organisation and community network and inspires you to get involved in the satisfying work of creating the environments whereby individuals and groups alike can improve the quality of life for themselves and their children.

Connecting individuals, transforming communities.
