Resumption in Community Support for Older People (CSOP) scheme

The Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Pat Carey told Catherine Byrne (FG, Dublin SC) that he hoped to introduce a revised Community Support for Older People scheme at the end of April  (Dail Eireann, Debates, 31st March 2010, 172-3).  Spending in 2008 was €4.3m, €2.1m in 2009 and €3.1m was available this year.   116 groups had already been funded in 2010.  Arrangements for the new scheme, which addressed issues raised in last year’s review, were at an advanced stage.
