Active Citizens in action

Active Citizens grant funding available to community-focused organisations

Grant funding is available for Northern Ireland organisations to become Delivery Partners in Active Citizens, the British Council's social leadership training programme.

The British Council are offering grants to community-focused organisations through their social leaderships training programme, Active Citizens.

Active Citizens is a non-profit programme which promotes understanding of different cultures within local, national, and global communities. Since 2009, it has worked in 54 countries and supported more than 10,000 social action projects.

Active Citizens is open to a range of organisations, including grassroots and religious groups, sports teams, businesses, education providers, charities, youth organisations, arts organisations and social entrepreneurs.

The British Council want to help Northern Ireland organisations to connect with the programme. By bringing together people from different cultures, beliefs and perspectives, we can provide more opportunities to learn, share stories, and ultimately create a fairer, more inclusive Northern Ireland.
