€100,000 funding for 24 Mayo community groups welcomed

Posted in Connect on January 21, 2019.


FUNDING in excess of €100,000 has been allocated to 24 organisations in Mayo under the Community Services Programme (CSP) Support Fund.
The Community Services Programme (CSP) supports community organisations to provide local social, economic and environmental services through a social enterprise model.
Welcoming the announcement, Senator Michelle Mulherin said: “The CSP focuses on service delivery to disadvantaged communities and target groups, helping to address disadvantage and long-term unemployment.

“The programme targets communities where public and private sector services are lacking, either through geographical or social isolation or because demand levels are not sufficient.

“The CSP Support Fund will enable community organisations which are participants in the Community Services Programme to pay their staff the newly increased minimum wage which rose to €9.80 per hour effective from this month. The minimum wage had previously been €9.55.”
