Build a Better Future

Did you know that there are now 18,000 groups across Ireland already helping to “Build a better future” through their involvement with PPNs? We give you, the local communities across Ireland a voice.

More than a thousand PPN representatives are currently on boards and committees of local decision-making bodies. They are contributing to decisions on climate, transport, migrant integration, community health and wellbeing, policing and many more.

You can have a voice in your local decision-making bodies, by becoming a PPN rep on one of the nineteen boards we have Tipperary PPN representation on.

There will be a PPN rep call for all our vacant seats very soon. Your community group has an interest?  Nominate a rep from your group. It could be you!

Public Participation Networks allow local authorities to connect with community groups around the country and give people a greater say in local government decisions that affect their communities.

Each county and city in Ireland has its own PPN and more than 18,000 community and voluntary groups are currently members.

Membership of a local PPN also gives groups access to a range of other benefits including bespoke training programmes, information on funding and grants, and on proposals or decisions being made in their county, as well as networking and learning opportunities with other local organisations.
