Sources of Funds:
The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2015-2017 is funded by the Irish Government and co-funded by the European Social Fund and includes a special allocation under the Youth Employment Initiative
Some of Mayo North East funds are sourced via Pobal (an independent company that manages funds for various Government Departments i.e. Dept of Environment Community and Local Government, Dept of Education and Skills, Dept of Transport, etc. and EU monies) while some monies are drawn down directly from Government Departments and the EU (e.g. The Rural Development Programme). The Company also has contracts with FÁS for the management of the Local Employment Services across County Mayo as well as other programmes (Community Employment Scheme, Jobs Initiative, Job Club and Local Training Initiative).
Our work is conducted in partnership with other agencies and organisations, as there is realisation that in working together, we can achieve far more than working individually.
