It targets and supports those who are disadvantaged in society and less likely to use mainstream services and assists both individuals and groups.

”SICAP is a critical piece of work for SECAD Partnership.  We have been managing social inclusion programmes for over twenty two years but this is the largest and most important award to date.  It underpins our work with target groups across South Cork and it is an essential element of the broader supports that SECAD can offer to our clients and communities.’’
