Social Disadvantage

All our work is underpinned by a commitment to addressing Social Disadvantage at all levels and to prioritising such cases above less urgent issues. However, we are fully committed to an approach of inclusion and not of poverty labelling. Therefore, in all aspects of our work we strive to achieve a social mix that mirrors the already well-proportioned mix in existence in Macroom.
