The latest award brings the total amount of funding issued in the autumn round up to over €270,000 for not-for-profit organisations, charities and community and voluntary organisations whose work falls under the areas of educational access and support, suicide prevention, and care of the homeless.

Educational charity Suas received funding for its literacy support programme while the Irish Men's Shed Association received funding for its series of local network well-being events. Soar was also awarded to deliver workshops in sexuality and body image.
