Funding of €36,220 for the Waterford Social Prescribing Service was provided to Waterford Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) through Round 2 (2018) of the Healthy Ireland Fund.  Arrangements for the third Round of the Healthy Ireland Fund are being finalised by my Department and are due to be communicated to the relevant agencies shortly.  Waterford LCDC will be invited to apply for the third Round of the Fund.
