The Ballyphehane Community Association operates and maintains a Community Centre in the heart of the Ballyphehane community, located within the grounds of a community park with ample off-street parking. From its humble beginnings fifty years ago the Ballyphehane Community Centre has grown to become an integral part of the community for all age groups.
Employing a staff of 15, with a volunteer staff of approximately 35, the Ballyphehane Community Association offers a wide and diverse range of services through the community centre. These include Meals on Wheels, an adult day care centre, Bingo twice a week, a community café, a private gym, a large hall and meeting room facilities. Over 500 people visit the centre on a weekly basis and up to 50 meals are delivered daily in the Ballyphehane and Turners Cross areas.
The Ballyphehane Community Association plays an important role in the local community by enhancing the quality of life of the local population by delivering services that help reduce social isolation, low self-esteem, depression and poor health. It partners with the local HSE Community Work Department, local nurses, the HSA, and the Ballyphehane – Togher Community Development Project in the delivery of day care facilities and disability accessible transport, and the provision of high-quality sport and social facilities in the area.
The Ballyphehane Community Association is an excellent resource for providing the local community with easy access to events, sporting activities, and general information about the community
