Strengthening Community Groups

Development workers support local community groups via a socially-inclusive community development approach. This work supports collective community engagement and the development of sustainable, stronger communities.

Eligible community groups which represent or work within disadvantaged communities and SICAP target groups can avail of these supports. Direct supports include needs identification, community planning and capacity-building to deliver social, recreational, developmental and cultural activities. Practical supports are also provided to ensure equality and inclusion measures are in place and facilitation to participate in local and national decision-making structures.
