  • Up to £1,000

The Pressure Group Fund

Purpose of the Fund

Throughout the Foundation’s history we have been committed to addressing the challenges of peacebuilding, social justice and effective community development. We believe in the power of community activity to change Northern Ireland for the better.

The common theme linking all our grant programmes is that they provide individuals and groups with tools and support to make positive changes to their lives. We want to raise awareness of social justice issues on behalf of vulnerable communities.

The Pressure Group Fund has been established in recognition of the contribution groups and people in our society, who are working towards supporting social change, can make through direct civic action, lobbying and campaigning. It is one way in which the Foundation can be responsive to needs and issues facing communities.

What is a Pressure Group?
A pressure group is an organised group that does not hold candidates for election, but seeks to influence and change government policy or legislation. They are also described as 'interest groups', 'lobby groups' or 'protest groups'. Pressure groups are not necessarily formally constituted as organisations.

What Do They Do?
Pressure groups allow people the opportunity to participate in democracy by being involved in social change without necessarily joining a political party. Pressure groups may be viewed as essential to democracy because they allow the free expression of opinion and the opportunity to influence governments.
Examples of sectors where pressure groups may focus on could include:
Culture
Environment
Human rights
Health and wellbeing
Poverty and inequality
