Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme

Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP)

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme focuses on reducing poverty and promoting social inclusion and equality through local and regional engagement and collaboration.  Its vision is to improve the life chances and opportunities of those who are marginalised in society, living in poverty or in unemployment through community development approaches like involvement of migrants at all levels in society.

The service was established in April 2015 and is funded by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government (DCLG), European Social Fund (ESF) through POBAL.

All SICAP supports are FREE and confidential. The service is available in Dublin Inner City and Greater Dublin Area, for migrants.
