Funding for Community Relations and Cultural Diversity (Northern Ireland)

The Community Relations Council, with the support of the Government has established a fund of approximately £400,000 each year to be spent on community relations projects.

This funding is intended to help community/voluntary groups throughout Northern Ireland develop their capacity to engage in community relations work and to enhance the community relations potential of projects they undertake. The main objectives are to:

  • Develop opportunities for groups to explore their own cultures, beliefs and traditions, increasing their capacity to develop relationships of trust with those of different traditions and values
  • Develop opportunities for groups to extend their knowledge and understanding of others’ cultures, beliefs, traditions
  • Enable groups to challenge stereotypes
  • Increase the ability of groups to identify and address those issues which divide them
  • Develop networks of communication, trust and cooperation between divided communities.

The maximum funding available is £10,000 but most grants will be much smaller than this.

The closing date for applications is the 28th November 2016.
