Galway City Partnership
Galway City Partnership


Galway City Partnership is a local and community development company working in Galway City. We have been in existence since 1996 and our aim is to tackle disadvantage and social exclusion – and focus particularly on those who are long term unemployed.

We have a role in the development of innovative, flexible programmes to meet the needs of our specific groups and individuals.
We work strategically with local agencies and groups to ensure that mainstreaming of successful projects becomes a reality while enabling the lessons learned to positively influence policy at all levels.

Galway City Partnership Mission Statement:
"To tackle disadvantage and social exclusion, with particular emphasis on those currently, or in danger of becoming long term unemployed. To enhance their capacity to contribute fully to social and economic development."
