The LCCCT More Than Food Project in Lisburn is using an £85,000 grant over two and half years. The project is providing volunteering opportunities and support to people using their food bank service. A project manager will oversee activities which include befriending, mentoring, sign posting to services, handyman service, or summer camp. The project will also run a Creative Café for people with learning disabilities, mild mental health issues and older people.
A larger amount of funding (between £10,001 and £500,000) for projects working with your community – whether that’s a community living in the same area, or people with similar interests or life experiences.
