Its all about


a warm welcome

As an increasingly multicultural community, with people arriving from all over the world, KIN is collaborating with Dublin South City Partnership and other groups to welcome recently arrived people in orientating and grounding themselves, and setting about
their work and family life.

a dictionary definition

KIN (n): family; the web of social relationships that form an important part of the lives of all humans in society.


KIN’s commitment to facilitating programme initiatives and cultivating local leadership stands to bring a new dynamic to bear around active citizenship – and fostering a healthy, creative, and compassionate neighbourhood. Our aim is to facilitate the improvement of our area – as a place to live, work and play.

In recent times, given the range of local planning processes and development strategies, it is essential that KIN find an effective means of communication and engagement with as wide a community as possible. KIN wants to become more representative of our community and facilitate better engagement.

Looking forward, we are focused on stronger outcomes across a range of issues – from ecology and conservation, to education and recreation, to housing and transport, to heritage and culture and more.

The aim is to improve the quality of life for everyone here.
