In the face of current challenges facing the Irish community and voluntary sector, all organisations are looking at ways of working differently. In certain limited circumstances, some organisations may see the benefit in exploring merging permanently with another organisation, or consortium of like-minded organisations. We have a small fund which might allow such organisations or consortiums to explore this.
In this year’s Social Change Grants Scheme, grants of up to €7,500 are available to organisations working to address Mental Health issues, in particular for Travellers, victims of Domestic Violence and Refugees.
Priority will be given to Traveller-led organisations, but applications will also be considered from organisations with a proven track record of working consistently with Traveller groups.
We are offering grants of up to €6,000 to Traveller-led organisations to develop Leadership Strategies within their local communities.
