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.


The Rural Social Scheme in County Kildare currently employs 22 participants and 1 supervisor.  The majority of RSS participants on the scheme in Kildare are involved in environmental maintenance with sports clubs and local community groups.
