South West Mayo Development Company is contracted by Mayo Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) to implement the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018-2022 in the Castlebar Municipal District, the Claremorris Municipal District and the Mayo Islands.

SICAP's aim is to reduce poverty and promote social inclusion and equality in Ireland through supporting communities and individuals using community development approaches, engagement and collaboration.

SICAP Goals

SICAP has two Goals:

1. To support communities and target groups to engage with relevant stakeholders in identifying and addressing social exclusion and equality issues, developing the capacity of Local Community Groups, and creating more sustainable communities.

2. To support disadvantaged individuals to improve the quality of their lives through the provision of lifelong learning and labour market supports

Primary Target Groups to be Engaged

SICAP recognises that disadvantage is experienced more strongly by particular groups of people in society and in particular geographic communities. SICAP takes a dual approach to targeting disadvantage and social exclusion by targeting communities in need by taking an area-based approach, and individuals in need by taking an issue-based approach. The following are the target groups to be engaged through SICAP:

-           Disadvantaged Children and Families

-           Disadvantaged Young People (aged 15-24)

-           Disadvantaged Women

-           Disadvantaged Men

-           Lone Parents

-           Low Income Workers/Households

-           New Communities

-           People living in Disadvantaged Communities

-           People with Disabilities

-           Roma

-           Travellers

-           The Disengaged from the Labour Market (Economically Inactive)

-           The Unemployed
