Community Awards

As Belfast Harbour continues to play a vital role within communities here in Belfast, and the surrounding areas, we want to help the organisations and charities which make a positive impact in their own communities.

£100,000 will be available for grass-roots organisations across Northern Ireland in 2024.

Grants of up to £5,000 will be available for charities, volunteering organisations and community groups delivering activity positively impacting the environment, education and skills and bringing the community together. 

The Community Awards are now closed and will re-open in Autumn 2024. 

The Community Awards are part of Belfast Harbour’s ongoing commitment to being a socially responsible port, and building partnerships with organisations which support communities, the environment and the development of employability and skills.

Hear from previous Community Awards beneficiary, Eastside Greenways about the support they received from Belfast Harbour to deliver an outdoor education programme for local schools, and their experience of applying for the Community Awards.

“The Community Award was really easy to apply for. I would definitely recommend it to anyone… the team are really supportive if you have any questions that you need to ask.”

– Jacqueline O’Hagan, Manager for EastSide Greenways.
