Lifes2Good Foundation Fund Offering Support in West of Ireland

 

Lifes2Good Foundation is an Irish charitable Foundation with a special interest in supporting women and children in situations of vulnerability in the West of Ireland. This year the Foundation is offering grants of up to €5,000 to not-for-profit groups based in Connacht, who are working on new projects that aim to prevent or reduce levels of domestic violence in the region.

Proposals for the Lifes2Good Fund should demonstrate an innovative, community-based approach with potential for development, expansion and possible roll-out in other areas. Projects may one or more of the following approaches, but other creative approaches will also be considered:

  • Empowerment programmes for women and girls
  • Programmes that tackle issues such as consent, respect, healthy and unhealthy relationships, coercive control
  • Community leadership initiatives for women and girls
  • Educative, informative and preventative work with men and boys
  • Work that focuses on empowering survivors to bring about change in their lives (e.g. coping strategies, exit strategies, parenting strategies, life after domestic violence)
  • Work that focuses on working with violent partners, to determine the factors that lead to violent or controlling behaviour and strategies to avoid/ prevent that violence
