Over the past 3 years, ChangeX Burren has been promoting initiatives that seek to improve community wellbeing in the Burren.
We are delighted to announce that ChangeX Burren will provide a small amount of funding to existing and new projects. Thanks to the Community Foundation for Ireland, there will be several Community Wellbeing Awards of amounts between €250 and €500 presented to successful applicants during the Burren Winterage Weekend at the end of October this year.
Who Can Apply?
Anyone who is already involved in a ChangeX initiative in the Burren as well as anyone thinking of starting a new one can apply. The aim of your project should be to seek to improve your community’s overall wellbeing.
What To Apply For
Whether you are planning to start a Men’s Shed or buy equipment for an existing one, or applying for printing costs to promote your initiative, or keen to get momentum going for a community garden in your area, this money can help you get to the next stage.
For some additional inspiration, have a look at the ChangeX online platform where there are lots of new ideas such as parkrun, TechSpace, Repair Café, The GreenPlan, Community Fridge – all ideas that could work well in Burren communities.
How To Apply
You can submit your application through this form. Just explain clearly what you will use the money for. Applications will be accepted up until midnight on Thursday 12th October. Successful applicants will receive their Community Wellbeing Award during the Burren Winterage Weekend on Friday 27th October next in Ballyvaughan.
