Belfast Harbour Awards £47,000 to Grassroots Organisations in Second Round of Community Awards 

In the second round of the 2022 Belfast Harbour Community Awards, £47,000 has been donated to support twelve community groups and charities across Northern Ireland. 

The groups awarded funding support include Belfast & Lisburn Women’s Aid, The Turnaround Project, Harmony Community Trust, North Belfast Women’s Initiative & Support Project, Refuge Language, Belfast Exposed, An Droichead, Fighting Words, New Lodge Arts, Shankill United Football Club and NI Science Festival.  

In total, £87,000 has been awarded to 25 charities and community groups across Northern Ireland through the Community Awards in 2022. 

The Belfast Harbour Community Awards provide community organisations, charities and non-for-profit groups registered in Northern Ireland with the opportunity to apply for individual grants of up to £5,000. The grants are just one strand of our wider responsible business activity, and our commitment to supporting local communities, the environment and the development of employability and skills. 

Allison Dowling, Communications and Marketing Director at Belfast Harbour said, 

“As many local communities struggle with the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, it’s more important than ever that they are supported at a grassroots level. The organisations that have been successful in their applications for funding are doing amazing work in the communities in which they operate, and we are proud to support such a variety of projects across the region.”
