The Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme 2019 is now *LIVE*

The Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme takes a fresh approach to improving our local environment and building a sense of pride in our local communities.

Launched by Local Councils, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, McDonald's UK, Coca-Cola and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, the Small Grants Scheme provides support to volunteer projects that:

  • Improve the health and well being of communities whilst helping to improve and/or maintain public spaces.
  • Use innovative ways to reduce littering and dog fouling where you live.
  • Improve the way your local environment is looked after, whether urban, rural or coastal.
  • Contribute to the development of civic pride within a community with a focus on environmental improvement.

Grants are available from £500 to £5,000 and are open to volunteer and community groups, all school and third level education organisations, youth groups and sports clubs undertaking civic pride projects throughout Northern Ireland.
