Representing Members


Representation and Promotion

As a relatively young movement, Development Trusts NI needs a strong voice to influence the policy, enterprise and funding contexts within which development trust operate, and to ensure that opportunities and resources are available to support their continued growth and development.

To do this, Development Trusts NI undertakes a range of promotional and representational activities within the community, social enterprise and voluntary sectors

  • with local authorities and the local Government
  • with other relevant public and private agencies
  • with key funders

The ability of Development Trusts NI to do this effectively relies in part on our members being pro-active– feeding into consultations (see members area for latest submissions), attending strategic events, supporting Development Trusts NI activities and raising the profile of development trusts and the movement as a whole with both political and agency representatives at a local level.
