The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP)

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) is a government-funded initiative in Ireland aimed at addressing poverty and social exclusion through community engagement and strong partnerships.

The programme runs from 2021 to 2027 and provides funding to support disadvantaged individuals, community organizations, and public sector agencies in working together to improve the quality of people’s lives. 

The programme is delivered by a team of Community Development Officers who use a community development approach to engage with marginalized communities and individuals. This approach focuses on empowering individuals and communities to identify and address their own needs and priorities, with a view to achieving sustainable change.

Through SICAP, KLP is committed to creating a more inclusive and socially-just society for the County, where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
