Minister Humphreys praised the groups, stating, “These groups are working tirelessly within communities to provide both young and old with an outlet to socialise, upskill, relax and so much more. I am constantly amazed by the work, community spirit, and ethos of the many, many groups that give so much of their time to enhance and improve their communities.”

This funding is part of The Local Enhancement Programme 2024, which allocated €6 million in capital supports for community groups and organizations throughout Ireland, with €1 million specifically designated for women’s groups. The information collected from these grants will help the Department better understand the spread and needs of Women’s Sheds, Groups, and Networks across the country, informing future support strategies.
