Our mission is to facilitate individuals and communities to participate fully in social, economic and cultural activity by supporting a vibrant and inclusive society in Co. Kildare
SICAP is the new Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme. It aims to tackle poverty, social exclusion and long-term unemployment through local engagement and partnership between disadvantaged individuals, community organisations and public sector agencies.
Rural Development Programme
The aim of the Rural Development Programme 2007 – 2013 is to strengthen the rural economy and to improve the quality of life in rural areas and to respond to ideas which will enhance the environmental, social and cultural richness of our rural areas.
The Rural Social Scheme
The Rural Social Scheme aims to provide income support for farmers who are in receipt of long-term social welfare payments, and to provide certain services of benefit to rural communities.
TÚS Work Placements
The TÚS Programme provides work placements for people who are long term
unemployed and on the live register. The placements are with community and
voluntary groups. We work with local voluntary groups to arrange work placements
that are suitable to participant’s experience and skills, and help participants to
improve their job readiness.
“I just wanted to express my gratitude to you all for the help you gave me and for all the wonderful times I had while working as a participant on the TUS Programme”
-John Bruton, Kildare-
