The Carnegie UK Trust is currently offering support for public debates run by not-for-profit organisations to help communities address issues of concern to them.
The Trust is inviting applications from event organisers to bring together high calibre chairs and panels for “Carnegie Challenge” debates. The funds will be available to meet the expenses of those taking part. These debates will form part of the programme of an already existing event.
Applications from eligible Irish organisations are encouraged.

Applicants have to demonstrate that their event is in keeping with the Trust’s strategic remit to improving the lives and wellbeing of people across the UK and Ireland. They will also receive professional advice and support as part of the agreement.

- The conference must relate to one of the three themes of focus of Carnegie UK Trust People and Place/ Knowledge and Culture and Enterprise and Society
