A pioneering development initiative to build individual and collective capacity to lead with courage, creativity and collaboration and drive cross cutting approaches to address complex social issues. Through significant coaching support, 48 community leaders in two areas, were ignited to drive enduring social change, by enabling new thinking, new leadership, new and renewed sense of purpose and hope for communities long impacted by ‘complex’ or ‘wicked’ social problems and economic deprivation. Coaching sparked confidence and conviction in selves to fully realise own and community potential. Leaders are now thinking differently and working collaboratively in joined up problem solving.

Coaching (6 sessions x 48 participants) is an integral element of a Place Based Leadership Development initiative funded by DRCD and delivered in Drogheda and Darndale, by Louth Leader and Northside Partnership, respectively. Northside Partnership was the lead agency
