Social Inclusion Funding

Sustainable Inclusive Communities

Funding will improve access to services and community activities for hard to reach and disadvantaged/isolated community members. “Hard to Reach” groups includes young people, older people, people with disabilities, people living alone and those in isolated areas, migrants, new communities, travellers, unemployed people, children, women, isolated rural men.

Support is available for capital investment for hard to reach groups which will enable them to fully participate in their local community. Priority will be given to innovative projects which target hard to reach groups and projects which will be sustainable and well used in the future. Funding will be focused on projects that meet the needs of the most disadvantaged groups and geographical areas. A training budget is also available that engages young people and other hard to reach groups across County Leitrim.
