|Main Points and Agreed Actions
|Note from Rep
|Note – It would be good to have a social inclusion meeting prior to the LCDC meetings.
|Healthy Ireland Fund
|· Very brief summary of applications under this fund was circulated for approval
· Asked for Support and Capacity Building for groups applying for funding
· Want to set up a Funding Sub-committee however this is difficult as most community reps could have conflict of interest. Need further clarification
· Co. Clare has signed up for Healthy County initiative which will support the National Framework and will along with CYPSE develop a plan for health and wellbeing
|Note: More and more funding programmes are being administered through LCDC yet LCDC does not have final say just a role in recommending to relevant department. This is not a good process.
|SICAP – Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme (with CLDC)
|· New SICAP is in place for 2018 – 2022
· Closing date for tenders is 29th September
Social Inclusion Sub-group to meet to evaluate tenders – training for members of sub-group available through Pobal
|I have asked that when sub-groups etc are being established through the LCDC that social inclusion representation is not just confined to myself and Dermot as we are stretched – this is being considered and I will let you all know the outcome.
The training guide to completing the individual registration form gives more info on new SICAP and worth reading – Link to document
