New Year – New Funding Opportunity for New Community Initiatives to support Carers4th January 2023
Belfast Trust recognises the vital role that unpaid/family carers contribute to Health and Social Care. Belfast Trust is committed to progressing and enhancing the supports available for carers in line with our Carer Strategy – Caring Together in Belfast.
The Community and Voluntary Sector plays an important role in this work and to support this, the Trust has established a £25,000 Carer Community Micro Fund.
The aim of the Carer Community Micro Fund is to provide valuable investment for community based initiatives to support carers across the Belfast Trust area and organisations may apply for up to £2,000. Guidance is attached and the on-line application is available at https://forms.office.com/e/w9G4sZkamh.
Applications MUST be submitted by 5pm on Monday 16th January 2023.
The Carers Support service have put together a guidance document to support applications. Click here to download it.
