Calling all local charities and community groups
Connswater Homes is committed to, not only providing excellent homes for its tenants but, being socially aware of the environment in which it operates and to supporting other charitable causes which enhance the social, economic or environmental sustainability of the communities in which it is operating.
Under the rules of the Association, we have an agreed sum of money set aside which will be allocated to a Common Fund to assist local community groups and similar organisations.
How to apply
The criteria for applications are as follows:
- The donation must be used for a project/organisation in Northern Ireland;
- The project/organisation must have a link to a geographical area where Connswater Homes currently have housing stock (please see list above), or have a development underway;
- There must be a perceived community benefit from the work of the organisation receiving the funding; and
- The donation is conditional upon a photograph and/or some information to illustrate what the money was used for, which can be published in our newsletter and social media platforms.
Applications for funding should be addressed to the Chief Executive, providing full details of the cause and supporting documentation, where available. Applications will be recommended to the Board; their decision shall be final.
Each application will be treated on an individual basis with due regard to equality of opportunity in all aspects of the nine areas set out by the Equality Commission of Northern Ireland.
