Community Education Programme

What is Community Education?

The Community Education programme supports local communities and community based groups in County Waterford, Waterford City and County Wexford.

Who do we work with?

Community Education is informal learning that contributes to the development of the local community. Grants and Tutor Hours are available to community groups. Each application is individually assessed.

Due to the volume of applications received priority is give to: 

Groups who organise community education programmes for people who may face acute barriers to taking part in education: Older people, Women experiencing disadvantage, People with disabilities, Travellers, Ethnic minority groups, Unemployed, Lone parents, Men experiencing disadvantage, Carers, Ex offenders

Groups providing community education programmes in areas where adults do not have easy access to part-time education opportunities
