We want to be as supportive as we can be, adapt and play our part in responding to this ever changing situation and that is why we’ve put processes in place to ensure we can continue to operate the Foundation as usual; and we’ve introduced a new Coronavirus Fund.
To help and reassure you whilst we all navigate our way through the coming weeks, please note that;
If you’re a grantee of the Foundation, our priority is always to support you to do your best work; we recognise that circumstances change and are proud to be a flexible funder who will adapt to the circumstances you are facing.

In recognition of the emerging threat and the great contribution that communities are already offering, we have developed a New Needs Fund and groups wishing to apply can do so here. So far we have awarded £700,000 to 140 communities across Northern Ireland.
