Who We Are

Dublin South City Partnership (DSCP) is a local development company which addresses issues of disadvantage, unemployment and social exclusion across a large part of south Dublin city. The area we cover, as shown in the map below, has a population of over 125,000 and incorporates a very diverse range of communities, some of which have many needs.

Our company provides a range of services, ‘from cradle to grave’, in an effort to meet these needs. These services include support for community childcare projects, education programmes for children and adults and a range of services supporting unemployed people on their journey back to education, training and work. We also support individuals and groups who are developing small enterprises.

An important part of our brief is to work in partnership with various community and state agencies. Accordingly, we support a whole range of community groups on issues such as disability, older people, interculturalism, social regeneration, community safety and neighbourhood development.

The issues we deal with are often complex and difficult. Our approach focuses on making a practical difference to the lives of individuals and communities. To make this difference we are committed to working in a cooperative manner with the communities which we aim to serve.

Dublin South City Partnership ( DSCP ) is committed to promoting equality and embracing diversity in its work and in its workplaces. This commitment is at the heart of what the organisation works for and was set up to achieve.

While this commitment influences the whole of the organisation’s work it should also be seen ‘in action’ under the following heading.

• In how we work and who we work with
• In our workplaces
• With our staff and volunteers

Here is our Equality and diversity policy in full.
