The Health Service Executive
The Department of Social Protection

KCCP receives funding from the Department of Social Protection and the Health Services Executive (HSE).

The Department of Social Protection funding is used to run a ‘special status’ Community Employment programme open to anyone over the age of eighteen from the greater Kilbarrack area who are experiencing problems with alcohol or drugs. Referrals are made from the local Drug Treatment Services-HSE. This funding is also used to employ support staff on our youth programme-Youth Matters.

The HSE funding allows KCCP to employ a Programme Co-ordinator, Rehabilitation Manager, Youth Worker, Administrator and Drugs Worker. It also provides core funding for Youth Matters. It also allows KCCP to run a Family support group-St. John the Evangelist (which meets every Wednesday night).

In addition the programme provides a free and confidential community counselling service –open to adults. In January 2012 KCCP formed a partnership with SASSY, which provides an addiction counselling services for those under eighteen years of age (with parental consent) every Monday afternoon.

KCCP have developed excellent working relationships with the local schools, the Gardai, the Probationary Services, Drug Treatment Services and Psychiatric Services-HSE. We also receive great support from Dublin City Council, City of Dublin Vocational Education Committee, City of Dublin Youth Services Board and KLEAR the local adult education centre.

We would also like to thank the three local public representatives –Tommy Broughan T.D., Terence Flanagan T.D. and Sean Kenny T.D. for sticking with our programme through thick and thin.

The programme is run by a local voluntary management committee –anyone from the area wishing to help should contact our co-ordinator Marian Clarke 01-8324516
