BCDA is a mature community development organisation based in South Belfast. It was established in 1974, and in the 40 years since then the Association’s work has focused on our role as a multi-purpose organisation, operating a resource centre and acting as a catalyst for the creation and delivery of social actions to tackle disadvantage and address those issues which impact on development and quality of life matters for vulnerable individuals and groups.
