SICAP (2015-2017)

SICAP (2015-2017)


Welcome to the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) page.

What is SICAP?

The aim of SICAP is to reduce poverty and promote social inclusion and equality through local, regional and national 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, targeted supports and interagency collaboration, where the values of equality and inclusion are promoted and human rights are respected.

Programme Implementers, with the support of Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs), will target those who are the most disadvantaged and excluded in our society. LCDCs in conjunction with the contracted Programme Implementers are required to empower communities to work collaboratively with relevant stakeholders using a broad range of supports and interventions facilitated via the new programme funds.

The Programme has three goals:

1. To support and resource disadvantaged communities and marginalised target groups to engage with relevant local and national stakeholders in identifying and addressing social exclusion and equality issues;

2. To support individuals and marginalised target groups experiencing educational disadvantage so they can participate fully, engage with and progress through life-long learning opportunities through the use of community development approaches;

3. To engage with marginalised target groups/individuals and residents of disadvantaged communities who are unemployed but who do not fall within mainstream employment service provision, or who are referred to SICAP, to move them closer to the labour market and improve work readiness, and support them in accessing employment and self-employment and creating social enterprise opportunities.
