Movements capable of winning only happen because people – like you – demand change and make justice matter.

At its best Comhlamh is a vehicle for that. We want to welcome lapsed members back into the fold and build a base of new ones.

In an era where advocacy work is officially frowned upon and funders are always asking “do we fund that?” it’s vital people get active again, take out paid memberships.

Remember, we don’t just want your money in the bank. We want you back in the room.

Comhlámh is organised around membership groups and action projects. The money that comes in from our membership drive and our solidarity circle scheme goes directly to maintaining the vital independence of the work our members do together.

  • All copies of Focus magazine sent directly to your door…
  • Exclusive Membership tshirt featuring design by Ballyfermot College of Further Education student Barry O’Neill. (only for those paying full rate) & badges…
  • Our Be The Change tool kit…
  • 50% discounts on our courses…
  • The opportunity to act for global solidarity and to support others in doing likewise…

Where does the money go?

Straight to supporting the work of our member groups such as the Options and Issues group, Focus Magazine, the Trade Justice Group and other similar activities including the newly emerging regional groups around the country.


Why Not Join Our Solidarity Circle?


Hundreds of brilliant and clever people have passed through Comhlámh over the years. We want to bring them back into the fold so that their experiences can become part of the institutional wisdom our newer members can tap into.

Membership groups have been at the core of Comhlámh’s work over its lifetime.  There are increasingly fewer membership based organisations in Ireland. Comhlámh is bucking that trend and actively making space for membership driven groups to come and form within Comhlámh and lead out on issues that are of concern to them.

Comhlámh’s new home is providing a space for people to drop-in and for groups to come together and form and link up with local development activist groups.  There are also re-emerging membership groups around the country and these all need supporting.

There has been a narrowing of space for civil society in Ireland, with donors less interested to fund those things that cannot be easily measured or that are openly critical of the status quo.

Will you join?  Our target is to recruit 100 Solidarity Members.

Comhlámh members at 35th Anniversary Development Forum 12 May 2010

Comhlámh is creating the space for returned volunteers and development workers to get involved and work to support members to grow as a community of engaged citizens who are developing peer-led, innovative ways to challenge unjust systems and structures that affect people in the Global South.

This work is not easily donor funded.  Comhlámh needs a network of Solidarity Members who can help to ensure that we have independent funding to carry out this key work with our member groups.

We’re asking those that can, to give a little more to support the work of our member groups. Take out a Solidarity Membership of either €10, €15 or €21 per month.  A donation of €21 per month (€252 per year) with tax reliefs is worth €362 to Comhlámh.

Active Groups

People of all ages believe that getting involved with an organisation like Comhlamh is more important then ever in ‘modern Ireland’ and an increasingly troubled and unequal world.

Comhlamh has activist groups and initiatives made up of members in the areas of Trade Justice, the publishing of Focus Magazine and Options and Issues in Development and hope you will become actively involved on a regular basis or on an occasional basis. We really value input on all levels of commitment and we can’t do it without you.
