LDCs implement the national Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme (SICAP) across the entire country. SICAP addresses high and persistent levels of deprivation through targeted and innovative, locally-led approaches. It supports disadvantaged communities and individuals including unemployed people, people living in deprived areas, people with disabilities, single parent families, people on a low income, members of the Traveller and Roma community and other disadvantaged groups.

In addition to SICAP, LDCs deliver specific supports and programmes to disadvantaged groups to overcome barriers to social inclusion. Thus, they provide childcare supports, after schools and youth projects, mental health programmes, Drugs and Alcohol projects, Community Health, Social Prescribing, Migrant Integration Projects, Traveller and Roma supports.
