Cumann na Daoine is a community based organisation in Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland. We set out to provide programmes that will empower people to help themselves and each other. We strive to give people a voice, building community confidence and creating awareness of social issues. The spirit of the project is to reach out to all, enhancing skills and giving people belief in their own dignity and self worth. We aim to break down barriers by listening to, and accepting, each others differences. We work from the principles of equality and inclusion and adhere to the community development principles of empowerment, participation, education and collaboration. We are committed to providing a safe, accessible, welcoming and confidential environment for people to explore and value their own power.
