Community Development Coordinators (CDC’s) are professionally trained community development staff, employed by local Mothers’ Union’s to help and support members as they engage with their churches and wider community. They help equip and empower members to reach their potential and transform their communities through grassroots projects.
There are more than 300 CDC’s working in over 30 countries across the globe. While the focus of each CDC’s role may vary, it’s essence the same - they offer advice and support to leaders and members enabling them to identify needs and establish or develop Mothers’ Union projects that meet those needs. They work to bring increased skills, relevance and capacity to the practical outreach our members make locally. As well as working in their own area, they often attend regional and national events so that their skills and expertise can be shared with a wider group of people whilst also bringing back new ideas.
