Local Organisations are asked to express interest in Community Services Programme (CSP).

Local Organisations are asked to express interest in Community Services Programme (CSP) funding.

Galway City Partnership calls on Community Organisations to express an interest in a new round of funding under the Community Services Programme (CSP).  The CSP is operated by the Department of Social Protection (DSP) to support legally incorporated community organisations to provide local social, economic and environmental services through the application of a social enterprise model of delivery.

This programme may suit you if your Community Organisation is:

  • A Company Limited by Guarantee or a Co-Operative.
  • Able to show clear evidence that a service meets a community need and are serious about providing employment opportunities for those most distant from the labour market.
  • Generating traded income as a social enterprise with at least one set of audited accounts. If the social enterprise does not have audited financial statements due to only recently commencing trading, an income and expenditure account signed by the Chair and Treasurer of the company, and trial balance sheet, for last year can be submitted.

Deadline to submit Expression of Interest (EOI) to Galway City Partnership is:
5pm on the Tuesday 4th July 2017.

See our Website on www.gcp.ie for the EOI form and guidelines or contact Eileen at [email protected]  for further information.
