The types of organisation that will be considered for financial assistance include:

Below are examples of some of the many activities that can be supported:


  • The provision of opportunities for older people

  • Activities for young people and helping to meet their social, educational and leisure needs

  • Community involvement in local arts and cultural activities

  • Participation in local sports and leisure activities and enabling clubs to develop and improve sporting infrastructure

  • Access to sustainable transport schemes
