Northern Ireland’s Community Relations/Cultural Diversity Grant Scheme

Northern Ireland’s Community Relations/Cultural Diversity Grant Scheme is inviting applications from locally based voluntary and community organisations to develop their capacity to engage in community relations work and to enhance the community relations potential of projects they undertake.

The scheme is aimed at organisations such as community development groups, cultural organisations, women’s and men’s groups, faith based groups, tenants’ associations, youth groups and rural groups involved in community relations, reconciliation projects and cultural engagement for projects primarily involving adults.

The funding is for projects which address at least one of the Community Relations Council’s objectives:
• Develop opportunities for groups to explore their own cultures, beliefs and traditions increasing their
capacities to develop relations with those from other cultures.
• Develop opportunities for groups to extend their knowledge and understanding of others’ culture, beliefs and traditions.
• To enable groups to challenge stereotypes of their own and other communities in order to acknowledge and address differences.
• To increase the ability and confidence of groups and organisations to identify issues which divide them.
• To develop networks of communication, trust and co-operation between divided communities.
• To promote models of good practice for community relations work in Northern Ireland.

Groups can apply for grants of up to £10,000, but most grants awarded will be of between £2,000 and £5,000.

The deadline for applications is 1 November 2024 (4pm).

For more information please visit Community Relations / Cultural Diversity | Community Relations
Council (community-relations.org.uk)

For further information, please go to the Health Alliance website.
