Grass roots community and voluntary groups are encouraged to apply for the Community Foundation NI's ongoing grant scheme - the Telecommunity Fund Grant.


  • Priority will be given to applications from small groups, typically with an annual income of less than £200,000, as evidenced in most recent set of accounts
  • Projects must aim to directly support one of the following specific groups:
    • Young people
    • Older people
    • People with disabilities
  • The Fund will not support projects targeting all ages.
  • Priority will be given to projects that will benefit groups dealing with disadvantage (e.g. rural isolation, low income, social exclusion, reduced access to services), and projects that involve the beneficiaries in their development and delivery.

The next panel meeting will take place on 24 November 2020, therefore applications submitted after 27th October 2020 at 12 noon will not be considered in this round.
