Community-based groups in the Causeway Coast and Glen’s area which are making a positive difference to society are being encouraged to access a new £1M fund.

The ‘Building Better Futures’ fund will help charities, community and voluntary groups, and social enterprises by providing small, unsecured loans that are not currently available from traditional financial sources.

The scheme is being funded by the Building Change Trust, Ulster Community Investment Trust (UCIT) and Belfast Charitable Society, one of Northern Ireland’s oldest charitable organisations.

Further information about the scheme is available by contacting UCIT on 028 9031 5003 or visiting www.ucitltd.com.
