About this event

There has never been a greater need to get-together and share knowledge and experience.


This Meet the Funder event is with the Henry Smith Charity. By attending this session, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the charities’ Strengthening Communities Grant Programme, which Mary manages.


The aim of this grants programme is to fund grass roots, community-led organisations located in and working in the most deprived areas in the UK. This grant programme funds organisations supporting communities in the most deprived areas which are physically located within, or immediately next to the most deprived areas according to the Indices of Multiple Deprivation. Please visit The Henry Smith Charity website for more information.


By attending this Meet the Funder event we aim to give you the opportunity to:

  • Ask questions about the Strengthening Communities Grant Programme, including the application process.
  • Hear about who the programme is focused on supporting.
  • Better understand what is currently being funded by the programme, and whether your project fits within this.
  • Gain an insight into the decision-making processes led by the funder.
  • Receive advice direct from The Henry Smith Charity.

This Meet the Funder event is suitable for Community-led charities and not for profit organisations who are:

  • Based and working within or immediately next to an area within the 15% most deprived areas in Northern Ireland. Check here
  • Have an income of between 20k and 500k
  • Need funding (including running costs) over 1 – 3 years
