Supporting Community Facilities

SECAD Partnership works closely with community groups to identify and access appropriate sources of funding.

Increasingly, public funding has become more bureaucratic and reduced in value with short term packages, not suited to longer term strategic actions. SECAD endeavours to link community groups with suitable funding programmes internal and external to SECAD. SECAD also plays a vital role in helping to shape strategies and plans to attract public funding programmes to support local initiatives.

SECAD supports communities in South and West Cork to access funding for business, community and social enterprise projects.

Funding is provided through open and targeted calls for capital investment, technical support. Click here to find out more about LEADER funding.
