SICAP is the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme.  It aims to tackle poverty, social exclusion and long-term unemployment through local engagement and partnership between disadvantaged individuals, community organisations and public sector agencies.  Breffni Integrated runs SICAP in County Cavan. To contact a SICAP staff member please visit our contact page.

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

 

It is funded by the Irish Government through the Department of Rural and Community Development and co-funded by the European Social Fund under the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020.

SICAP addresses high and persistent levels of deprivation through targeted and innovative, locally-led approaches. It targets and supports those who are disadvantaged in Irish society and less likely to use mainstream services and assists both individuals and groups.

The programme is managed by 33 Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs), with support from local authorities, and actions are delivered by Programme Implementers (PIs).  Breffni Integrated is the Local Development Company responsible for managing and delivering SICAP across county Cavan.

PIs work with marginalised communities and service providers using a community development approach to improve people’s lives. For example, this could mean helping people to find work or to upskill, by providing CV training, a personal development course, helping them to prepare for an interview or helping them onto a workplace programme such as CE or Tύs.
