The Place Based Leadership Development course is a key action in the Drogheda Implementation Plan, and has been developed to support front line workers, residents and agencies to develop and enhance skills in response to the impact of increased criminality and anti-social behaviour.
Twenty four participants drawn from community, voluntary, agencies and state bodies are participating on the course. Paddy Donnelly Chief Officer of Louth LCDC welcomed the start of the course and wished all the participants well encouraging them to maximise the opportunity that the interagency working will provide.
