In The Community
A Community Awards Scheme Panel, working independently of the Society, meet twice yearly to assess applications and allocate awards ranging from £200 to £2,000.
Applications for Community Awards must be made using the Society's Application Form, which must bear the nomination of a current Member of the Society. Applications submitted without the nomination of a current Member will be returned.
Applications will only be accepted from non-profit organisations working for the benefit of communities within Northern Ireland.
The Rules of the Scheme can be found on the reverse of the Application Form, available from any branch of the Society. Please feel free to download a copy of the Community Awards Application Form by going to the Related links section at the top of this page.
