400 communities across Ireland awarded grant to host a community party

Posted on October 11, 2016

As part of the year of Belonging, 400 communities across Ireland were awarded a grant of €250 to host a community party. These community parties brought people from all walks of life together to increase the sense of belonging in Ireland. The Community Party grant round is part of the Belonging16 grants strategy for 2016 that has awarded over €600,000 to increase the sense of belonging for some of the most marginalised groups in our society. To see some of the community parties that took place around the country this year watch the short video below.
