Battview Matters is a Community and Family Support Project based in Charleville, which seeks to work with the local community to enhance the quality of life of residents of Batt Donegan Place and Hillview Drive Estates.  The project is a collaboration between Ballyhoura Development, Cork County Council, Respond, and Tusla, the Child and Family Support Agency.  The project runs from the community building in Hillview Drive Estate, Charleville, and delivers family support and social inclusion initiatives in the community.

All programmes are designed in consultation with local residents and reflect the most pressing needs identified by the residents. Current examples include a homework club for young children, a Parent and Toddler Group, a community garden, and estate enhancement activities.

The Battview Matters Project regularly publishes a newsletter outlining current programmes, events, news, and training opportunities available in the wider Charleville area.
