About the Core Funding Scheme

The Core Funding Scheme provides support for organisations which are considered of strategic importance in promoting community relations work across Northern Ireland.

The scheme contributes towards salary and organisational running costs.

If you require further assistance, please speak to a member of the Funding and Development team.

Key Principles of the Core Funding Scheme

1. The work must be intentional.

Regardless of the grant scheme, a programme must have a clear good relations purpose from the outset with deliberate and planned activities which directly address sectarianism.

2. It must address an identified good relations need. 

All applications must be able to clearly demonstrate the good relations need they want to address and how they have identified this need.
