Minister Simon Harris has today announced that 10 Wicklow projects will benefit from an additional €51,000 in Government funding.
The CSP currently supports community based organisations to provide local social, economic and environmental services through a social enterprise model, providing a contribution towards the cost of staff in CSP organisations. It typically supports organisations to meet local service gaps and provide access to services and facilities that would otherwise generally be unavailable.
Announcing the news, Minister Harris said:
“From my experience working with Co Wicklow communities, I know that the support of the Community Services Scheme has been hugely helpful in recent years. The Easi Access Transport (Easi-Cab) have secured €14,575 from the Department of Community and Rural Affairs which will be very welcome after a difficult time for the organisation.”
“The Community Service Programme supports organisations who provide vital social and environmental services in our Co Wicklow community. I am really eager to support these organisations in any way that I can so I am pleased to deliver this news today. Access to the Community Services Programme has been key to the running of these organisations so I will continue to work to ensure this support remains in place.
