The National Lottery Community Fund has announced funding for nine local groups to help them carry on their community services. The big winner this time round is Centred Soul who have just opened new premises in the centre of Newry where the Post Office used to be.

Projects being funded are supporting those in need over the festive season and enabling communities to have a better 2022 through activities to improve mental health, support children with disabilities and help people new to Northern Ireland to integrate.

Centred Soul

Centred Soul who recently opened their new premises in Hill Street, Newry has been awarded a £196,928 grant to expand their support for women and their families who have experienced or are experiencing peri-natal mental health issues and/or birth trauma. Over three years the project will increase their online and in-person services, improve their online retail presence and develop their social enterprise activities in their new premises which will help them to become more sustainable. 

Drumgath Ladies Group

One of the groups funded is Drumgath Ladies Group in Rathfriland. They are using a £10,000 grant to develop a community garden. The project will bring the whole community together and provide activities including yoga, crafts, cookery demonstrations and a day trip. 

Lislea Community Association

Lislea Community Association is using a £5,500 grant to carry out a feasibility study of their building and address issues with accessibility, circulation and toilet facilities.

Autism Families Community Support Group

Autism Families Community Support Group in Newry is using a £10,000 grant to run activities and Christmas events for young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their siblings. This will provide opportunities for the young people to develop skills and improve wellbeing, and a chance for caregivers to build relationships and support one another. 

Meadow Armagh Road Community Association

Meadow Armagh Road Community Association in Newry is using a £10,000 grant to run activities and events for the community to help them re-connect. Activities will include sports, arts and crafts, cookery, genealogy, IT training and day trips. 

Burren Men's Shed

Burren Men’s Shed is using a £9,960 grant to install a metal shed on their site which will be used for a workshop to craft and create items. This will reduce isolation and improve their wellbeing.

Rostrevor Community Book Corner

The Rostrevor Community Book Corner is using a £9,800 grant to create a space for social meetings, to organise readings, art displays, literary festivals and classes for the local community.

Glassdrumman Hiberian Social Club

Glassdrumman Hiberian Social Club, based outside Annalong, is using a £9,950 grant to refurbish their toilet facilities to make them more suitable for families with babies and young children, more accessible for people with disabilities and more eco-friendly. The improvements will make the community space more accessible for community groups to use. 

Field Studies Ireland CIC

Field Studies Ireland are using a £9,600 grant to buy equipment and create a digital video series, that will be available online, to help the community connect with their outdoor spaces and local biodiversity in Mournes.

Thanks to National Lottery players more than £30 million a week is raised for good causes across the UK like these. The vast majority of grants awarded are for smaller amounts of under £10,000, going to the heart of communities to make a big difference.  

£3,313,174 of grants were allocated throughout the north, benefiting 93 community projects.

Paul Sweeney, The National Lottery Community Fund’s NI Chair, said: “It’s inspiring to see such a diverse range of projects being funded as we continue to rise to the challenges of COVID-19, helping people stay connected and supporting wellbeing. 

“Thanks to the money raised by people who play The National Lottery, these grants will make a big difference to people across Northern Ireland in 2022 and beyond.”
