Historically, Oakfield Trust has provided a range of property-based services and related supports, with our primary activity being Property Management & Development. Our aim is to help community and local projects that benefit the community, and our primary activity is the acquisition, customisation, and management of properties which we then lease to organisations that work with marginalised groups and socially excluded communities. We are based in Clondalkin but offer our services across the whole of Ireland.
Throughout the years we have used some of our surplus funds, when available, to provide a range of additional supports to local and community projects. These supports cover a broad spectrum and can include help with project management, capacity development, feasibility studies, project loans, business development supports and start-up grants. Supports include:
Oakfield Trust is the trading name of Clondalkin Community Property CLG.
We currently have a property portfolio of 5 commercial properties in Clondalkin. Of these premises, 3 are owned by Oakfield Trust and have been let to anchor tenants, while 2 other properties are leased and sub-let to community-based organisations. Find out more about these properties by visiting our Property Portfolio page.
Oakfield Trust also manages a small commercial business park in Clondalkin under Nangor Road Management CLG. This management function involves diverse services such as appointment of auditor, coordination of quarterly meetings, preparation of financial reports and preparation of service charge budgets including security and other associated supports. This is an area which we may look to expand in the future. Please contact us by email for further information.
All profits from Oakfield Trust are reinvested into our company in order to consolidate and expand the range of properties. When possible, we use a portion of these profits as a ‘community dividend’ to support marginalised groups and organisations in socially excluded areas by assisting with carefully selected local social enterprises.
