Causeway Rural and Urban Network (CRUN) is an umbrella organisation supporting a wide range of local projects, community groups and charities across the Causeway and Northern Trust area.
History of CRUN
CRUN was established in September 1999 with the aim of enabling regeneration and encouraging sustainability in local communities. The network has worked tirelessly since it was established and currently has a database of over 240 organisations, with more coming forward every year.
In 2015, CRUN moved to new custom-build premises in the centre of Coleraine. The multi-purpose Community Resource Centre comprises over 9,000 square feet of office, retail and conference facilities.
Many changes have taken place over the years and CRUN currently has 14 members of staff. CRUN currently implements a range of training in Community Development, Good Relations, Substance Misuse Education and Prevention and Positive Mental Health. CRUN encourages an ethos of collaborative working and sustainability with all its members.
