Limavady Community Development Initiative

Limavady Community Development Initiative

Limavady Community Development Initiative (LCDI) is a cross community charity whose work is focused on serving the whole of our community across the Borough. We were established in 1987 by a group of local people concerned by the increasing levels of unemployment in the Borough at the time (a few of those original founding members are still on the Committee!)

Today we employ around 70 people delivering a range of innovative projects throughout the Borough and further afield.


LCDI’s Advice Centre has been serving the local community for over twenty years. Highly trained advisers are available both on the telephone and in person via an appointment system to assist local people with all sorts of practical help and advice across a wide range of issues. The centre offers advice on welfare benefits, employment, consumer issues, housing and tax, to mention a few. The centre also has specialist advisers available to assist local people with Tribunal representation and debt intervention. Even when we can’t help, we’ll make sure to pass you on to someone who can. The services provided by the Advice Centre are free, confidential and entirely impartial.

Advisers can be contacted by ringing 028 777 65438 and asking for the Advice Centre , where we will advise you by telephone or make an appointment to see you.

Limavady Community Development Initiative out of schools club provides an after school service for primary school aged children. It is run in a purpose built facility at Rathbeg Drive.

StepChange Debt Charity formerly known as The Consumer Credit Counselling Service (CCCS) is a registered charity whose purpose is to assist people who are in financial difficulty by providing free, independent, impartial and realistic advice.

Established 1995, LCDI Disabled Daycare Centre caters for young physically disabled adults from the Limavady Borough between the ages 18-65 years.

Since 2005 we have been operating a Community Garden Centre in partnership with Benbradagh Resource Centre at the Roe Valley Hospital, Limavady. Our efforts are aimed at encouraging adults with learning disabilities to assist in the production, care and selling of all plants for your garden.

The recycling project was set up in 2004. It’s main aim was to give people practical opportunities to engage with environmentally friendly practice – to help divert items from landfill.

More sevices available on the LCDI website.
