£1.5 million on offer in Northern Ireland for community services

The Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister in Northern has announced the opening of a second round of applications under the ‘Contested Spaces’ Programme.

The £1.5 million, which is being made available jointly by the Executive and Atlantic Philanthropies, will be spent on projects developed by local communities which create more spaces and services that are delivered on a shared basis.

The successful applicants will join five projects which have already, collectively, been awarded £2.5 million to support work to build shared spaces in Belfast, Derry, Craigavon and Castlederg/Newtownstewart.

In announcing the second phase of applications, the First Minister and deputy First Minister said that they were heartened by the initial round of funding applications and particularly encouraged rural communities and communities focusing on youth engagement programmes to apply for support on this occasion.
