Our Vision - “To create social, cultural, financial and physical sustainability for the Resurgam Trust and the communities we serve by 2020”

What Is The Resurgam Trust?

Following many years of community, social and economic development within working class communities in Lisburn and as a direct result of an in-depth community consultation we are delighted to announce that we have established and incorporated our new company: The Resurgam Community Development Trust Limited.

The Resurgam Trust is supported by established and recognised community-based organisations and social enterprise organisations with many years of experience working in communities throughout the city of Lisburn. The Resurgam Trust will act as a voice and will lobby on behalf of our membership to ensure that the needs of our community continue to be addressed.

The Resurgam Community Development Trust Ltd is a Development Trust Association. We have ambitious plans for our Trust, which we feel connects communities across Lisburn and will drive community, youth, social and economic development for many years to come.

The Resurgam Trust is based in the Laganview Enterprise Centre in the Old Warren Estate in Lisburn and works with community-based organisations across both Lisburn North and Lisburn South.  We are a non-political organisation but feel that it is extremely important to build alliances and relationships with all locally elected representatives across all political divides. Equally we want to reach out and build good working relationships with statutory, community and voluntary sectors in Lisburn and wider afield.

Some of the areas we are currently working on include:

  • Education & Employment
  • Community Development
  • Youth Provision
  • Social Enterprise
  • Community Safety
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Early Intervention

Awards received to date:

  • The Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2011
  • Lord Mayor's Award for Volunteering in the Culture & Diversity Category 2013
  • IPB All-Island Pride of Place Awards for Enterprise and Youth Projects 2013
  • Lord Mayor's Award for Young Volunteer of the Year 2014
  • The Investors in People Standard 2014
  • NI Enterprise's Social Economy Business of the Year 2014
  • Best Social Enterprise Business Award from Lisburn City Business Awards 2015
