Ulster Garden Villages Limited

Ulster Garden Villages Limited was established under the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts (Northern Ireland) in 1946 with the principal objective of providing good quality housing and associated amenities for the disadvantaged and aged.

Preferred projects will be those demonstrating active participation and self-help. They should be innovative and developmental with an achievable, practical and sustainable objective.

They will not fund activities which are the responsibility of any statutory agency, neither will they fund the direct replacement of statutory funding.

The Committee will only make donations toward specific projects under the control of a responsible organisation and when large capital projects are involved, only when satisfied that the sponsoring organisation has raised or is capable of raising the remainder of the finance required.

THE MAIN OBJECTIVES TO WHICH FUNDS MAY BE ALLOCATED ARE:

· Health

· Disadvantaged sections of our society

· Young people

· Culture & Heritage

· Environment
