As such the North Antrim Community Network - which takes in the Coleraine area - is inviting community and voluntary sector organisations to apply for non-recurring awards to address the outlined themes. Grants are available at the level of £1,000 per project. Applications may be considered for more strategic projects over £1,000 limit dependent on evidence of need and availability of resources.

Applications will be assessed on the potential to improve health and wellbeing and on the ability to complete the work by the end of February 2015, including evaluation, by mid-March 2015. Tuesday 6th May 2014 – close for applications.
