IPB Community Engagement Fund 2014 - 2015

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.

In 2014 and 2015 IPB launched a 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.

€1 million per year was invested in local communities through this initiative supporting a total of 287 projects throughout Ireland.
