Strategic Priorities 2019-2024

Building Sustainable Communities

Building Sustainable Communities

Local community organisations have untapped potential that could be unlocked by access to more resources, new approaches, relationships, skills and technologies. We are working towards a stronger, resilient and sustainable community sector equipped to face the challenges of tomorrow by unlocking resources and skills, piloting innovative approaches, developing partnerships and encouraging entrepreneurial mindsets

Thriving after the Conflict

Thriving after the Conflict

The conflict in Northern Ireland is still actively affecting the lives of some communities, individuals and families and we will continue to support and deliver a Peace Impact Programme. We believe that some communities are still struggling with the effects of the conflict but have the potential to thrive and we will work to support groups, leaders and potential leaders in those communities to make that happen

Community Voice

Community Voice

Everyone has the right to participate in the decisions that affect their lives and shape the society they live in. Public trust in government and politics is extremely low and there are few opportunities for people to influence the decisions that affect their lives – with the right support civil society can change this by reinvigorating civic participation and pushing for deeper democracy.

People on the Edges

People on the Edges

We will always look out for those who are caught at the margins of society, in particular the refugee and asylum seeking community, the more vulnerable of the LGBT community, and the travelling community and we will work to support organisations who build capacity in these communities.

Inspiring Generosity

Promotion of Philanthropy

Beginning with the causes and issues that matter, our team will promote and guide giving in Northern Ireland. Working with individuals, families, businesses and other funders, we will connect networks of like-minded people, important causes and charitable organisations and help to evaluate the effectiveness of giving. Your local centre for philanthropy, we’ll share our expertise and provide philanthropy services, training and guidance. Over the next five years, we’ll grow new and more funding for the sector, supporting donors to make an impact.
