You need to have funds in order to run your group. Fundraising, loans and grants are the key areas where you obtain funds. The LCCC funding portal gives details on the current funding options available. You will need to sell your project to the funders.

Visit the Lisburn and Castlereagh website to find out more about funding.

The three main types of funding options sources are:

Fundraising:
You can run events and activities to raise cash to carry out your work.

Loan capital or long-term liabilities:
Loans can be taken from banks, from mortgages on properties, leasing and hire purchase. This will only be permissible if your constitution states that you are allowed to.

Grants:
Funders have clear criteria and expected outcomes for their funding. It is important that you have a clearly identified need.
