The Rathlin Development & Community Association (RDCA) is the voluntary body that represents the Rathlin community and lobbies for improvements to services and infrastructure etc. The RDCA membership elects a committee of volunteers that are heavily involved in various projects, ranging from training and skills development to renewable energy and a whole lot in between. The Rathlin Community Association was established in 1978 and after alterations to the constitution, its name changed in 1986 to the Rathlin Development and Community Association. The RDCA is a charity, recognised by the NI Charity Commission and HMRC. Membership is open to people aged sixteen years or older who are resident on Rathlin Island for at least eight months in the year or have the Island as a permanent home address (but may work, study or convalesce on the mainland).

The RDCA is primarily concerned with:

  • Improving the quality of life for those living on the island.
  • Ensuring that basic services and infrastructure are provided.
  • Encouraging appropriate economic development.
