The Knockmore Rathduff Economic and Social Development Company, operating as the Knockmore Rathduff Recreation and Resource Centre, was established in 2001 to provide services for the community.

We are always looking for new board members, so please get in touch if you would be interested in joining us.
We currently have 7 members of staff in the Centre supported by a full time Manager. We also facilitate a number of government employment schemes such as Community Employment (CE), Rural Social Scheme (RSS) and Tus who provide us with a vital team of a further 7 staff. This is operated in conjunction with Mayo North East.
As a charity, registered with the Charities Regulatory Authority (20057275) and the Companies Registration Office (351401) all of our accounts are published and available for the public to access. Please click here for our 2019 Audited Accounts. While the charities regulator has advised that charities use SORP when completing their annual accounts, it is not yet mandatory and as yet we have not undertaken to do this. We aim to use SORP in our 2020 accounts.
We are currently working toward implementing the Charities Governance Code and hope to be fully compliant by the end of 2020.
