Coronavirus Community Support Fund for constituted organisations


Coronavirus Community Fund


Who can apply: Constituted organisations based in Northern Ireland.

We want to support community groups working together; particularly in smaller geographical communities.  We will therefore encourage a partnership approach, and one application from one lead organisation, rather than a number of separate applications.

Criteria: The fund will be open to constituted community organisations throughout Northern Ireland, who are supporting isolated older people at this time.

The focus of the fund will be to offer community organisations emergency funding to deal with emerging issues in the community, affecting older people (aged 50 and over), as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus, and the need for self isolation, and potential for further exacerbation of loneliness and isolation of these older people.

The Fund is open from 9am 16th March 2020 and will remain open on a rolling call basis.  We do, however, expect a high level of interest in this fund.  Depending on current funding available, and any future funds raised, we therefore may decide to close for applications within a relatively short space of time, if we do not have enough funds to meet the demand for support.

It is recommended that you read our Grant FAQs before starting your grant application. Should you have any further questions please contact the Grants Team on 028 9024 5927.
