Social Initiatives

 

Meath Partnership specialises in building the capacity of local communities by working with individuals and voluntary and business groups.  Our social inclusion initiatives are targeted at those residents of Meath who are potentially at risk of disadvantage whether they are residents of certain target areas or of specific target groups. Through our various social initiatives we have worked with jobseeker groups, vulnerable older people, vulnerable youth, migrants and families and lone parents.  

 

Below are details of the social initiatives in which Meath Partnership is currently engaged:
