Newington Housing Association - Brian Mullan Community Fund - to support projects in North Belfast

The Association is delighted to again welcome applications from community or voluntary sector organisations seeking to avail of essential funding to deliver projects and services within North Belfast. Over the past two years, via this Fund, the Association has distributed in excess of £20,000 to 27 local organisations throughout North Belfast.

The health & well being of those residing within the communities we serve is extremely important to us. Our Community Fund initiative has been designed to support organisations and projects that promote inclusion, strengthen communities and improve individual’s lives.  We therefore are seeking to invest in activities that have a significant and positive social impact for all.


Newington's Brian Mullan Community Fund aims to support voluntary and community organisations that are currently operating within North Belfast, to deliver one of the following fund objectives:

  • developing people's social, economic and employability skills

  • working to create a better local environment and develop safer communities for all

  • working to improve physical and mental health and well being

These objectives are focused around local people being active in developing and delivering their own solutions. We believe that organisations that put equality at the heart of project design and implementation are more likely to achieve better outcomes.
