Minister English welcomes €181k funding boost for AMEN Support Services based in Navan
Local Minister for Housing and Urban Renewal and Meath West Fine Gael T.D. Damien English has welcomed a funding boost of €181,707 from his Department for AMEN Support Services, a national group headquartered in Navan.
The funding is under a new round of the Scheme to Support National Organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector, and it will last for a 3 year period up until mid 2019. AMEN Support Services are a national organisation for male victims of domestic violence based in Co. Meath.
Minister English stated; “I am delighted that one of our Meath based national organisations has been able to benefit from funding from my Department under the Scheme to Support National Organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector. It vindicates the hard work of AMEN‘s staff and voluntary Board of Directors in providing information and support to vulnerable men and their families. Men can be victims of domestic violence too, and they also need help and support if trapped in abusive relationships.”
