Ballybeg Community Development Project was established in 1991 and incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in 1993. The inclusion of the Project in the National Community Development Program was as a result of years of voluntary work by community activists since the estate was built in Ballybeg in the 1970’s.

The work of the local voluntary Board of Directors  led to the establishment of Access I.T. Ltd. and First Steps Crèche Ltd., which are now independent companies still based within the Ballybeg Community Campus. within Ballybeg.

Over the years the CDP developed a range of programmes and services focused on the needs expressed by the residents of the estate. These included adult training courses, after-school education programmes, health programmes, women’s groups, employment programmes and supporting the development of a range of other organisations within Ballybeg.
