What we do
The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is a local, independent charitable foundation. We help communities in need, drive social change and change lives through impactful grantmaking and delivering innovative programmes.
Supporting bespoke giving and providing philanthropic advice we are a trusted, secure means through which donors choose how, when and where to give and we provide a range of management and grant making services for charitable funds.
In the last 3.5 years, the Community Foundation has allocated over £20 million in grants to communities throughout Northern Ireland. Amongst many, grantees include older people’s groups striving to reduce poverty and address isolation, youth organisations helping young people to develop employable skills, and women from disadvantaged backgrounds needing support to build confidence and a better future for their families. From large grants to help set up local community centres to small grants to simply help people pay for new clothes for a job interview, the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is giving grantees the tools and support to change their lives day after day, year after year.

What we do

Our work is based in the heart of East Belfast on the Newtownards Road. The four surrounding electoral wards, where our work primarily takes place, are all in the top 30 most deprived wards in N.Ireland. In the area we are based 32-46% of people are totally economically inactive and two thirds live in rented accommodation. Qualifications are low and unemployment and lack of self-belief are rife. We aim to relieve these difficulties and transform and renew our community by offering a range of services to support those in our community who need our help.
Our projects include our Hosford Homelessness services, our Employability project, our Irish Language project and of course our thriving church community which offers community groups, counselling and pastoral care to those who need it.
