Acorn Flood Fund


The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland has launched the Acorn Flood Fund to assist with the severe impact of summer flooding on the lives of people living in the North West.

Community Foundations are uniquely placed to support communities with a wide range of issues, and we have many years of experience and connections to local community groups and local government bodies.

It is our intention to support groups who apply to us for this emergency funding with grants of between £1000 up to a maximum of £2500 to those who are eligible.

Funding Criteria

  •  We will prioritise groups who are working to provide emergency support
  • We will fund groups providing ongoing support to those affected by the floods
  • We will fund groups whose work is in line with the charitable purposes of the Foundation and whose work has been impaired by the flooding
  • Typically we will be able to provide grants of £1k but will consider applications for up to £2,500
