The Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme takes a fresh approach to improving our local environment and building a sense of pride in our local communities.
Launched by Local Councils, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, McDonald's UK and Coca-Cola and Keep Northern Beautiful, the Small Grants Scheme provides support to volunteer projects that:
Improve the health and wellbeing of communities whilst helping to improve and/or maintain public spaces.
Use innovative ways to reduce littering and dog fouling where you live.
Improve the way your local environment is looked after, whether urban, rural or coastal.
Contribute to the development of civic pride within a community with a focus on environmental improvement.
Grants are available from £500 to £5,000 and are open to volunteer and community groups, all school and third level education organisations, youth groups and sports clubs undertaking civic pride projects in supporting Council areas.
