Community Services Programme - Expressions of Interest sought

A commitment of €1m of State Aid was announced in Budget 2017 to facilitate additional social enterprises to join the Community Service Programme. As successful applicants may receive ongoing payments for a period of years, the CSP is a high value support programme worthy of consideration.

Meath Partnership is now seeking expressions of interest from community and voluntary organisations/ social enterprises who wish to be supported under the programme.

This call is focused on community and voluntary organisations who deliver services that meet a need in the community, particularly disadvantaged communities, and who use the CSP funding contribution to employ staff from specific disadvantaged target groups. 


Meath Partnership has been requested to select one (1) applicant from County Meath to progress to the next stage of assessment undertaken by the Department of Social Protection. Full guidelines and EOI forms are available on and completed EOIs must be submitted to by 5pm on Wednesday 28th June 2017.

To support local C&V groups to engage with this Community Service Programme call, Meath Partnership is hosting an information evening on:

Title: CSP Information Event

Date: Tuesday, 13th June at 6pm

Location: Meath Partnership Office, Unit 7 Kells Business Park, Cavan Road, Kells, Meath
