Live Here Love Here:
Launched by Local Councils, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, McDonald's UK and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, the Small Grants Scheme provides support to volunteer projects that:
• Improve the health and well being of communities whilst helping to improve and/or maintain public spaces
• Use innovative ways to reduce littering and dog fouling where you live
• Improve the way your local environment is looked after, whether urban, rural or coastal
• Contribute to the development of civic pride within a community with a focus on environmental improvement.
Grants are available from £500 to £5,000 and are open to volunteer and community groups, all school and third level education organisations, youth groups and sports clubs undertaking civic pride projects throughout Northern Ireland.
In light of COVID-19, the Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme will make available funding to community groups enabling them to support the needs of local people impacted through reduced contact with society. Additional criteria has been added to the Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme this year:
• Support actions that help care for those in need as a result of COVID-19.
