Community, What's On

The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland has been appointed by Comic Relief to make £840,000 of funding available to voluntary sector and community groups here over the next two years. 

In order to support local community and voluntary sector groups with a potential application, an information workshop will be held in the Brain Injury Foundation, Camlough on 23 May 2019.



Funding will be awarded under four key strategic areas; ‘Children Survive and Thrive’; ‘Global Mental Health Matters’; ‘Fighting for Gender Justice’ and ‘A Safe Space To Be’, while a series of information sessions will be held across Northern Ireland in May to support community and voluntary sector groups with a potential application.

Michael Hughes, Head of Building Sustainable Communities at the Foundation said, “We’re absolutely delighted to have been appointed as an intermediary grant maker on behalf of Comic Relief. 

“We are equally excited by the potentially huge positive impact this funding will have on areas of significant need in Northern Ireland.



“The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland and Comic Relief share a number of core beliefs and priorities which include directly investing in communities, the importance of lived experiences of people in shaping and improving lives and in shifting ownership of power, as well as partnering with others who have greater experience, knowledge and connections.

“We also believe in adapting to change learning from lived experiences and influencing future policy and programmes from a lived experience perspective and look forward to lots of learnings over the next two years,” he added.



Workshop places can be booked online at Eventbrite by searching for Comic Relief Information Roadshows. 

Year one applications will open at 11.00am on Monday 3 June 2019 – and close 5.00pm on Wednesday 10 July 2019.

Applications can only be made via the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland website.
