Wicklow County Council has welcomed a €75,000 funding boost under the Healthy Ireland Fund (HIF) announced by Minister for Public Health, Wellbeing and the National Drugs Strategy, Hildegarde Naughton.
Wicklow County Council has a long-standing partnership with Healthy Ireland and has worked collaboratively to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone living in the County.
The award came following an extensive public consultation to identify key priority areas and the ‘at risk’ groups. The funds will be allocated to initiatives that support both positive mental health and decrease those at risk of poverty and basic deprivation and targeted at all age groups, particularly children, adolescents and young people, older people, those living in disadvantaged communities and people with disabilities.
