Cosc Awareness Raising Grant Scheme relating to Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2014

 

Local Awareness Raising Grant Scheme in 2014


Cosc is pleased to let you know that a call for funding for local awareness raising projects in 2014 relating to domestic, sexual and gender-based violence has been announced. The Application Form  and Guidance Manual  for Grant Applicants 2014 are available on the awareness raising page of our website www.cosc.ie.


Cosc, in conjunction with the Disability Policy Division in the Department of Justice and Equality, are providing in 2014, as last year, a separate stream of funding for projects that will develop and deliver appropriate and targeted communication to raise awareness and increase recognition of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence among people with disabilities. Those people with disabilities considered most vulnerable or at risk would be a particularly important target group.


The sum of funding available from Cosc under the 2014 local awareness raising scheme will be €50,000. A similar amount is available for projects that raise awareness among people with disabilities.


The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 5pm on Friday 2nd May 2014.  It is expected that decisions will be made on applications received and most eligible organisations paid grant money by mid June 2014.
