About Pobail le Chéile

Pobail le Chéile was founded in 1999 and has been delivering community work programmes since 2002. We are a community work organisation with a strong equality and inclusion focus and will pursue human rights issues for individuals. We believe that people must be part of the planning and decision-making process as well as being part of the solutions to disadvantage and marginalisation to achieve collective outcomes. Solidarity, joint working and participation are key principles to our work.

Bunaíodh Pobail le Chéile in 1999 agus tá siad ag seachadadh obair pobail ó 2002. Is eagraíocht oibre pobail muid le béim láidir ar chearta an duine, comhionannas agus cuimsiú. Creidimid go gcaithfidh daoine a bheith mar chuid den phleanáil agus próiseas cinnteoireachta chomh maith le bheith mar pháirt de réitigh chun míbuntáistecagus imeallú. Tá Dlúthpháirtíocht,comhoibriú agus rannpháirtíocht mar príomhphrionsabail ár gcuid oibre.

We manage a number of programmes and initiatives including:
