After an absence of over 3 years, CESCA is delighted to re launch their grassroots grants scheme, with huge thanks to the HSE Social Inclusion Services in Cork for supporting us with this initiative.

CESCA is keenly aware as an Alliance, of the importance of collaboration in achieving greater equality and inclusion. Our hope is that this one-off small grant will contribute towards and support initiatives that are working to bring communities together, to promote and progress equality and social justice in Cork City. Joint applications with one or more other organisations or groups are particularly welcomed and encouraged.

Given the times we are living in, priority will be given to applications focused on climate justice and/or those seeking to address socio-economic deprivation. However, we welcome applications broadly focused on social justice issues within the City also.

A total of €5,000 is being made available with grants of between €500 to a maximum of €1,000 to be allocated to successful applicants. Projects must be completed within a 12-month timeframe.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 11th November 2022 with successful applicants due to be announced in early December 2022, with funding to be made available in early January 2023.

The applications form is below and if you have any queries please contact Niamh Kelleher CESCA Coordinator, cesca.coordinator@gmail.com
