About Space & Place

The Space & Place Programme is a £15million, 5 year capital grants project that seeks to provide an opportunity for local communities to come together to identify a shared vision for their area and work together to deliver it. 

As of August 2015, the Space & Place programme is closed for applications. Thanks to everyone who applied

The programme is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, thanks to National Lottery players. The programme is managed by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Public Health Agency, NI Environmental Link, Rural Community Network and Groundwork NI

Space & Place will support the integration of communities, across various divides in Northern Ireland, through the development of local space and place. 

By prioritising enhanced use of space and resources, it will help build community capacity within and between communities, address isolation and support change through the transformation to safer, more user-friendly and useful spaces for individuals, families and communities.
