Watch below to hear from some of the organisations in Northern Ireland who have previously received a grant from the Community Cashback Scheme.
The Community Cashback Scheme was first started with SPAR Northern Ireland during Covid-19 as relief support to local community groups. Sixteen of Northern Ireland’s community groups and charitable organisations benefitted from the inaugural Community Cashback Grant.
The organisations ranged from local community groups who are ensuring the most vulnerable are still able to access hot meals while isolating, to critical care in the skies and some of Northern Ireland’s most important mental health organisations.
The organisations which received boosts to their COVID-19 crisis response funds were; Tiny Life NI, Mae Murray Foundation, Belfast Homeless Services, Flourish NI, Kilkeel Development Association, Foyle Down Syndrome Trust, Crossroads Care NI, SHINE Autism Support Group, Air Ambulance NI, Make a Wish NI, Action Mental Health, Simon Community, Nexus NI, Cruse Bereavement Care, Eating Disorders Association NI and Parenting NI.
