Sustainable NI celebrates after receiving £99,815 in Dormant Accounts NI funding

Sustainable NI, an environmental NGO based in Belfast, is celebrating today after being awarded £99,815 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund in conjunction with the Department of Finance.

Sustainable NI will use the grant to strengthen core organisational capacity through a new Sustainability Advisor, who will develop and deliver practical tools and services to help small businesses and other non-commercial organisations become part of a greater national effort to protect the environment.

The support will help demystify what is needed to achieve net-zero through training and mentoring on resource efficiency.

There will also be a new website, designed to raise the profile of Sustainable NI and its services, to ensure the long-term success of the organisation. 

Nichola Hughes, Director of Sustainable NI said:

“This funding will enable us to strengthen what we do, make our existing services better and give us the space and resources to develop new projects and services that support a sustainable, zero-carbon future.”

Sustainable NI is among 15 projects awarded grants to secure their long-term future.

The National Lottery Community Fund distributed £1,303,790 of the Dormant Accounts Fund NI in this last round to support the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in Northern Ireland.
