The Community Section runs, funds and facilitates a wide range of events, initiatives and programmes to develop, strengthen and empower Kildare communities.
That work is supported by a busy, dynamic team of fulltime, professional Community Workers in partnership with many individuals and groups.
Other agencies and stakeholders are also actively involved.
This transformative development work is building strong, sustainable communities countywide.

The annual Pride in Your Place Competition acknowledges the efforts of local authority residents and residents' assocations to maintain individual gardens and public open spaces.
This important work, which is often done on a voluntary basis, creates a real sense of community engagement and local pride.
The awards also acknowledge outstanding personal contributions via our Youth Endeavour and COVID Hero awards.
55 entries were received for the 2021 competition in nine different categories. Certificates will be awarded at a Community Awards event later in the year (timing and format to be confirmed).
