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 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
