The Social Inclusion and Activation Programme is a government funded programme designed to reduce poverty and social exclusion through a range of interventions at both a group and individual level which are delivered in local communities. The programme will be delivered by NEKD in collaboration with Kerry County Council.
The Programme has 3 Goals:
- To support and resource disadvantaged communities and marginalised target groups to engage with relevant local and national stakeholders in identifying and addressing social exclusion and equality issues.
- To support individuals and marginalised target groups experiencing educational disadvantage so they can participate fully, engage with and progress through life-long learning opportunities through the use of community development approaches,
- To engage with marginalised target groups/individuals and residents of disadvantaged communities who are unemployed but do not fall within mainstream employment service provision or who are referred to SICAP to move them closer to the labour market and improve work readiness, support them in accessing employment and self-employment and creating social enterprise opportunities.
