The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland works to support people, strengthen communities and build peace in the divided communities of Northern Ireland.
Thirty years of continuous conflict have left the people of Northern Ireland with special and urgent needs. Problems of community deprivation have been aggravated by high levels of stress, poor health and the fear of violence. People living in areas that are most disadvantaged have also borne the brunt of the impact of the Troubles, in terms of death, bereavement, injury and trauma.
The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is non-partisan, non-sectarian and has no political affiliations. It is therefore in the unique position of being able to work across all the divisions within society in Northern Ireland.
