Knockanrawley Resource Centre is an implementing partner for the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) in Tipperary South. SICAP supports are offered on both an individual and group basis to reduce poverty and promote social inclusion and equality.
We have ongoing targeted and blanket outreach within Tipperary Town for various courses and groups, including the Men’s Shed, Failte Isteach and the SHE group. We also identify and track specific needs as they emerge, such as substance abuse, parenting support for young mothers, overcoming isolation (mainly men) and people who are generally disengaged from society.
Through the past year of the SICAP programme, we worked closely with STDC, as partners in the South Tipperary Lot, covering social inclusion work in specific areas of Tipperary Town and with certain target groups as identified by SICAP. We worked with all county community organisations, HSE, STDC, ETB & RAPID,
through the Tipperary Town RAPID AIT, county working groups and through KRC policy work. With RAPID, we work with the TRN and the Community Representatives of the AIT before every AIT meeting. KRC goes through a process of social inclusion support for the AIT community representatives so that they can bring relevant issues to the table with an understanding of the analysis behind the issue.
If you have any questions about how we can help you, please ring a member of our team and we will do our best to answer your queries.
We also offer a supportive parents programme. The Parents Club is a peer support group offered to parents and facilitated by the PFSP Worker every Wednesday morning from 10.30am until 12.30pm in an informal setting. Activities included Stress Management, Organic gardening in the Club Allotment in KRC, up cycling of Furniture and Cookery.
