The Ulster People’s College Fund was set up in 2014 by the Ulster People’s College with the aim of supporting the many communities in NI who continue to suffer from social and economic problems.
Grants of up to £10,000 will be made to community groups and organisations to enable them to address some of the ways in which disadvantage can be positively addressed, in particular through education and community capacity building.
The aim of the fund will be to empower communities with skills and experiences to create a stronger, more engaged society in Northern Ireland.
Under the programme, community groups and organisations can apply to:
- Provide community education and development that is aimed at tackling the challenges of social and economic disadvantage
- Improve civic participation for people who are disadvantaged and excluded
- Overcome cultural and political division
Area: Northern Ireland,
Grant available: up to £10,000
Priorities: Priority will be given to projects that target groups and/or areas that are particularly disadvantaged and excluded.
Who can apply:
Constituted non-profit, voluntary and community based organisations and social enterprises based and working within Northern Ireland.
