Community Welfare Officers are based in health centres and are responsible for the day to day administration of Community Welfare Services. Community Welfare Services include schemes such as the Supplementary Welfare Allowance, medical cards, Nursing Home Subventions and the Mobility Allowance.

The majority of the work carried out by Community Welfare Officers is the administration of the Supplementary Welfare Allowance Scheme. This scheme is funded and legislated for by the Department of Social Protection and administered by the Health Service Executive. The types of payments made under this scheme include: rent supplement, Mortgage Interest Supplement, Diet and Heating Supplements, Back to School Clothing and Footwear Scheme and exceptional needs payments for items such as buggies, clothing, etc.
