Fitzpatrick encourages local voluntary groups to apply for grants


Groups who provide marriage, child and bereavement services have been urged to apply for grants by Kildare North Fianna Fail TD, Michael Fitzpatrick.

“The grants will be provided through the Family Support Agency for 2009.”

“Last year over €11 million was provided to over 600 organisations nationwide.”

“Letters have been issued to organisations who received funding last year, but any organisations providing these type of services in Kildare can also apply for funding.”

 “The services provided by groups who provide marriage, child and bereavement counselling are vital for families and people in severe distress and emotional difficulty and these grants provide practical support for that excellent work.”

“Full details and application forms can be found at I would encourage any organisations who think they might qualify to apply for a grant,” concluded Deputy Fitzpatrick.
