‘There are a number of agencies offering support of various kinds in this area, however there is a pressing need to adequately scope the on the ground requirements of local churches in terms of developing an understanding, processes and the skills base to equip for effective Christian community engagement in the Irish context. Diane brings a wealth of experience in terms of the theory and practice of church based community engagement to this task. I am glad to personally endorse Thrive Ireland.’
