Unwrap the gift of giving this year with the Community Foundation Northern Ireland

17 Oct 2018

Whether you’re representing your workplace, your family or yourself, come along to Ormeau Baths, on ‘Giving Tuesday’, 27th November and hear from amazing charities making a big difference in your local community.

Whilst each charity will have just 6 minutes to pitch their project, you will have time to vote for your favourite cause, ask questions, donate and celebrate your giving over a glass of bubbly and a bite to eat.

The Foundation will double donations on the evening up to £5,000 so make your Christmas giving go further this year with your Community Foundation. #NIGives #GivingTuesday

Book here now for what promises to be a wonderful event!

The Charities


Work with children and young people (aged 11–25) who haven’t had a fair deal. They may be experiencing homelessness, substance abuse, self-harm, mental health issues, leaving care or they are generally at risk. They aim to get children and young people where they want to be by using programmes designed by and for them.


Urban Community Chef

They are committed to developing strategies to help communities come together through the medium of food celebration. Using profits to subsidise equipment and courses for under funded communities, they believe that good food should be accessible to everyone and not a luxury for the few.


Mind your mate and yourself

Established as a direct result of an increase in local suicides the group was formed by a number of bereaved family members and volunteers.
The aim of the organisation is to provide support to families and communities dealing with various health issues as well as providing services that will help support individuals struggling with; bereavement, self-harming, relationship problems, bullying, mental/physical health and financial issues. Problems that have become so common in our communities that many people find aspects of their every-day life overwhelming.


Ups and Downs

Family based group that supports families who have a child/young adult with Down Syndrome. We aspire to give support and information to our members and also to organise events and activities for our children.
