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

Cosc is pleased to announce that we will be running the awareness raising grant scheme again in 2015.  It is hoped to advertise the scheme for national campaigns in mid December and for local awareness raising campaigns in March 2015.  Please check the Cosc website regularly for further updates.
