Sharing and Caring
The Sharing and Caring Community Employment Project has been operational in Cumann Iosaef centre for over 20 years. This is a DSP funded project and the participants are engaged in a range of duties that include carers, outreach workers, administrive and maintenance workers.
Carers and outreach workers work in tandem on an outreach service for the elderly. The outreach workers take part in painting and clean up jobs (in the local area) while carers provide a daily visitation service, and do shopping and light housework tasks. Sharing & Caring participants are also located in St.Patricks’ Bungalows and Baile Mhuire. An important component of the outreach work is the feedback of information on the particular needs of service users. These needs can then be provided for, either from within the Cumann Iosaef organisation itself, or through other voluntary and statutory bodies.
