MEP outlines funding opportunities

Following the success of her three funding directories for community groups, churches and business, Diane Dodds MEP will be launching a 2014 edition of her ‘Signposts to Funding for Community and Not-for-Profit Organisations’ publication, with workshops across Northern Ireland.

This directory will contain details of over 40 funds including new funding opportunities provided by the European Union under its 2014-2020 budgetary period.

Other sources of funding will also be covered such as funding from Local Councils, Central Government, Corporate Bodies, Trusts and Foundations.

The Directory will have a section on practical hints and tips for those groups seeking funding for the first time. Guidance about how to make successful applications will be provided.

If you want to explore funding opportunities for your organisation, whether that is a youth group, sports club, community association, school, church, lodge, older persons group or other type of organisation that brings people together, this is the event for you.

Please visit to register to attend the event at Hillhall Presbyterian on Thursday, January 23.

Details of other events are also available on Diane’s website.

Diane is a non-attached Member of the European Parliament.
