SHEP is an independent community based voluntary group but we receive significant funding from the Irish Government, though a number of departments and agencies.

SHEP’s key funder is the HSE. We receive core funding from the Community Services Department of the Health Service Executive Southern Region under Section 65 of the 1953 Health Act.
