Our story

County Wicklow Public Participation Network (PPN) was formed in July 2014. Since then Co Wicklow PPN has worked towards branding itself, developing transparent structures and procedures, providing community information, supporting member groups, representing the community on various committees and raising awareness of the PPN itself.

County Wicklow PPN is a non-party political and non-sectarian representative organisation that acts as a voice for all community and voluntary organisations in County Wicklow.

The PPN’s purpose is to provide an inclusive and independent structure that enables community consultation and participation in policy and decision making so as to improve the quality of life and opportunities for people in the county.
