Supporting Families

Chairperson's Welcome

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.

The Resurgam Trust is based in Laganview Enterprise Centre in the Old Warren Estate, Lisburn and works with community based organisations throughout both Lisburn North and Lisburn South. We currently have an individual membership in excess of one thousand, twenty three community based groups, organizations, projects and six social enterprises providing employment for over 80 members of the community.

We are a non-political organisation but feel that it is extremely important to build alliances and relationships with locally elected representatives across all political divides to ensure that our community receives the best care and services available.

The health and wellbeing of our community lies at the heart of or 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.

Philip Dean
Chairperson
