The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland’s Civic Innovation Programme aims to support initiatives that put people at the centre of decision-making in Northern Ireland.
Open to all voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations working in Northern Ireland, as well as public sector representatives and interested individuals, the programme will support projects that can deliver greater public influence over key societal issues as well as demonstrating how a more participative and deliberative model of democracy can build a better Northern Ireland for everyone.
One of the unique features of the programme is that the individual projects don’t need to be precisely defined at the beginning. Instead, organisations and individuals will be able to complete a simple online expression of interest form from 25th October 2019 onwards, until the deadline of Friday 17th January 2020.
Those who think they or their organisation might want to take part in the programme can attend the below information workshop:
