Funding Boost for Naas Older People

The Naas and District Community Alert are to receive Government funding of €4,200 according to local Fianna Fail TD Áine Brady.

“This funding is vital for the Naas and District Community Alert in their work to support older people in the community.”

“This funding comes from the Community Support for Older People Scheme which is administered by the Department of Community Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.”

“The funding will be used to improve the security of older people in their homes with grants available towards the costs of installing socially monitored alarm systems, security lighting, window locks, door locks, door chains and smoke alarms.”

“These extra security measures can often make the difference in older people remaining in their own homes and at the heart of their communities.”

“I would like to congratulate the workers and volunteers of Naas and District Community Alert for their hard work and dedication,” concluded Deputy Brady.
