Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government)

My Department manages the Seniors Alert Scheme which encourages and assists the community's support for older people by means of a community-based grant scheme to improve the security of people over 65 years of age and of limited financial means. The Scheme is administered by local community and voluntary groups with the support of my Department. Details of the funding provided to community and voluntary groups under the Seniors Alert Scheme is provided on my Department's website at http://www.environ.ie/en/Community/SeniorsAlert/.

The Seniors Alert Scheme replaced the Community Support for Older People Scheme in May 2010. The table below gives the figures requested in the question.
