IPB Youth & Community Fund 2014

The aim of our community theme is to encourage the continuation of volunteerism and local community support and to provide opportunities for individuals and organisations to take positive action for their communities.

To support this goal, in 2014, IPB launched its first nationwide community programme, aimed at strengthening local communities by increasing participation and promoting social inclusion through the stimulation and support of local organisations and initiatives.

A total of €1 million was allocated and this led to 174 projects receiving much needed support. Click below to view the list of the organisations and the projects that received funding throughout Ireland.
