Funding For Ennis Active Retirement

 

Updated : Apr 6, 2009

A County Clare voluntary organisation has received a funding allocation under the Government’s Scheme of Community Support for Older People.

The Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs announced that it has allocated EUR2,562 to Ennis Active Retirement. Welcoming the funding announcement, Minister of State and Clare T.D., Mr. Tony Killeen said, “I am very aware of the hardships that older people can face and, therefore, welcome any initiatives that improve confidence, security and comfort levels among older people in our society allowing them to continue to live independently.”

He explained that the scheme of Community Supports for Older People provided funding for initiatives to improve the security and social support of older individuals by means of a community-based grant scheme. “The security devices that Ennis Active Retirement can now benefit from under this scheme include smoke alarms, the once off cost of installing socially monitored alarm systems, security lighting, and window locks, door locks and door chains designed to strengthen points of entry to dwellings”, added Minister Killeen.

The scheme for Community Supports of Older People is administered by local community and voluntary groups and funded by the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

VeryHappyPig thinks this is a very deserving scheme, glad to see the Government is making some good decisions for a change!
