St. Munchin’s Community Centre has had an active role in promoting and developing community involvement within the Parish since its establishment in 2005. The Community Centre has developed a broad representative base from within the Community.
The core activities of the community centre would not be possible without the continued funding and support of FÁS Limerick City Council, the HSE. With the continued support our staff and management team, and the general public we hope to build on the programme and Services we provide.
“We aim to be an approachable, energetic, motivating and developing group who will assist our community to develop a sense of pride and reach its full potential. Our aim is to achieve this through supporting development within our community, networking, identifying and responding to needs and issues. We aim to enjoy what we do”
Aims and Objectives
- To provide a central accessible community hub accommodating local service providers
- To provide a meeting space for local community/voluntary groups
- To address isolation and social exclusion for the older members of our community
- To identify and respond to local needs
Our clientele are based all around Limerick and come to us not due to their circumstances but because of our quality, high standards and our exceptional level of customer care.
What makes us different?
We have the edge over other in the sector as the only Age Friendly building in Ireland. This stems from our passion and commitment to make the lives of our local community as good as possible. St. Munchin’s Community Enterprise Centre has an amazing team made up of 140 staff members located all over Limerick, plus our amazing volunteers who dedicate their time to help the community. There is a wide variety of people working in the centre so you’ll always feel at home here.
We have two main buildings in operation everyday, the community centre itself which is home to the majority of our services and the St. Lelia’s Age Friendly Community Education Campus which plays host to our community development and education classes.
In times of crisis, we are also the designated evacuation centre, which thankfully we have only put into action once during the floods of the Island Field. We were also the designated water point for the area during the contaminated water crisis.
We are a community enterprise centre in the heart of Limerick, that offers many services to our local area and the wider Limerick community. There are many social enterprises that under pin the success of our centre such as our Meals on Wheels, Hair & Beauty Salon, Florist, Photography Studio, Community Café, Chiropody, Catering, Classes, Seniors Clubs, Friendly Call Service, Bingo, Community Allotments, Maintenance & Management of the local graveyard & surrounding areas and our Community Education Training Campus which runs classes in conjunction with a variety of organizations, to name but a few!
Management Structure at St. Munchins Community Centre is managed by a Voluntary Board of Management who live and or work in the local Community. The “Board” consists of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Committee. The Centre is managed by a full-time manager.
The management team have worked very hard over the past years building and developing on our aims and objectives as a community development organisation in St. Munchin’s Parish. The management team meet on a regular format to carry out and monitor progress on ongoing projects and services to the community.
