The National Collective of Community based Women's Networks (NCCWN) consists of 17 women's groups located in various parts of the country, and is involved broadly in activation and outreach for disadvantaged women. In 2019, my Department provided funding of €1,439,000 to the NCCWN. This funding is towards salaries, administration and overhead costs incurred in the implementation of the activities set out in the agreed Women's Equality and Development Programme, NCCWN Support Scheme to Enhance the Inclusion of Women in Communities 2019, in line with the objectives contained in the National Strategy for Women and Girls 2017-2020.

The allocation provided for this organisation in 2020 will be €1,490,000, an increase of €51,000.
