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. Find out more about the Belfast Harbour Community Awards Fund here.

The Belfast Harbour Community Awards Fund is a new programme designed to help support the work of grass-roots community organisations and charities in Northern Ireland. 

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.

We are committed to supporting projects that will help to transform communities and help people to thrive.
