€81M Allocated to Voluntary and Community organisations


  • 1,450 organisations to receive one-off payment

  • Minimum payment of €1,000*

  • HSE to make payments in coming weeks


The Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly; Minister of State with responsibility for Disability, Anne Rabbitte; Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler, and Minister of State with responsibility for Public Health, Wellbeing and the National Drugs Strategy, Hildegarde Naughton announced today the allocation of €81m from the Government’s ‘Inflation Fund’.


Voluntary and Community organisations are working on the ground to help people of Laois and Offaly live fulfilled and supported lives. They are under pressure from escalating costs and I am delighted that this Government is providing one off funding in recognition of this. Organisations across Laois and Offaly, provide services like meals on wheels, social inclusion and much more, will benefit.


Community-based and voluntary health and social care providers are being allocated the funding on a once-off basis as part of Government measures to ease cost-of-living pressures. The minimum payment is €1,000 and in many cases a larger amount is allocated, depending on the organisation, and I believe this is a welcome help towards increased costs.

The Offaly Traveller Movement were among those awarded under the fund

At Budget 2023, the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform announced funding to assist various sectors with costs related to energy inflation, including €100 million targeted at “a range of Health funded bodies including nursing homes, hospices and Section 39 organisations”.

Ballycommon Telework & Training Center also received funding


€10 million of this funding was already allocated to fund the Temporary Inflation Payment Scheme for private and voluntary nursing homes. Under this scheme, nursing homes can claim up to €5,250 per month to cover up to 75% of their energy costs from July to December 2022.


*Note

The minimum payment to any organisation is €1,000 even if their core funding is less than that. In a few instances on the county lists the total is less than the 1,000 because the organisation works in more than one county and the amount in a county may not be the total for the organisation.
