The Management Committee meets every 6 weeks or so, and consists of a

The Forum is supported by Rea Lavelle from Dublin City Council and Kinga Paszko from Canals Local Drugs and Alcohol Task Force.
The management committee has been actively campaigning for more community policing, youth work and child protection services over many years.
