Since 2015 we have been delivering the Government’s Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) in the Bray and North Wicklow areas. 

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018 – 2022 aims to tackle poverty and social exclusion at a local level through local engagement and partnerships between disadvantaged individuals, community organisations and public sector agencies.
