The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland

CFNI are launching an ambitious Civic Innovation programme to support initiatives that put people at the centre of decision-making in NI.

The only independently-funded programme of its kind in the UK or Ireland, the Civic Innovation Programme will use a combination of intensive project design support, expertise on public participation and grant-funding to support the delivery of new initiatives that aim to deepen local democracy.

Open to all voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, as well as public sector representatives and interested individuals, the programme will support projects that can deliver greater public influence over key societal issues as well as demonstrating how a more participative and deliberative model of democracy can build a better Northern Ireland for everyone.
