Reconnect Programme

NACN are working with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council to deliver the Reconnect programme to address issues that have arisen within communities as a result of the COVID pandemic.  

What’s available?

Resources to help communities run programmes between now and mid March 2022 with financial assistance of up to £1000.  We will support proposals that address social isolation and loneliness by helping people whose emotional wellbeing has suffered as a result of the pandemic.  We particularly welcome smaller organisations; those that have limited funding and who do not normally avail of Council grants. There is limited funding available. 

We would like to support your group to reach out locally and are asking for you to identify what is needed.  We are here to assist with planning and will consider funding activities you are planning that will help people who have been emotionally affected by the pandemic.  The project budget has to be shared widely across all communities and we ask you to plan prudently.  Your key role will be to identify need/s, suggest project ideas, get people to take part and to get their feedback afterwards.  There is no closing date for this funding, applications will be assessed continuously and it will close once all of the funding is allocated.
