The aim of the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018 – 2022 (SICAP) is to reduce poverty and promote social inclusion and equality in Ireland through supporting communities and individuals using community development approaches, engagement and collaboration.

SECAD Partnership is a programme implementer of SICAP 2018 – 2022.  Through SICAP, SECAD aims to address high and persistent levels of deprivation through targeted and innovative, locally-led approaches. It targets and supports those who are disadvantaged in society and less likely to use mainstream services and assists both individuals and groups.

Programme Goal 1: Supporting Communities

Programme Goal 2: Supporting Individuals

”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.’’
