What we do

The Social Action Group was founded to give young people an opportunity to undertake community work and make a difference. That still remains one of the key objectives of the Social Action Group.

Since 1983 the Social Action Group has developed a Care Programme for Older people. It includes the provision of Social Housing, A day Care Centre, A meals on wheels and laundry service. It is regarded as one of the best models of its kind in the country.

The Social Action Group also provides facilities for young people not just for its own members but for all the young people in the community and beyond. Teach Iosagain (Youth Centre) is also used by various voluntary groups and individuals in the community.

The Group has been very involved in sending aid to the developing world supporting groups and individuals to undertake projects to help people suffering from the effects of famine and poverty. Over a quarter of a million Euros has been sent to the developing world since 1975.
