Community Work under SICAP 2014-2017
This is the final report of the CWI Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme research project. It contains the research and evidence gathered and used by Community Work Ireland in efforts to positively influence the second iteration of the programme.
The aim of the recently published SICAP II programme is to reduce poverty and promote social inclusion and equality in Ireland through supporting communities and individuals using community development approaches, engagement and collaboration. Community development remains one of the horizontal underpinning principles of the programme together with equality and collaboration.
While the programme remains subject to competitive tendering, a number of changes have been made to the second iteration of the SICAP programme.
