The aim of the Ireland Community Play Fund, sponsored by LEGO Foundation, is to support existing groups and individuals (once they form a team) in Ireland to start new projects that improve community wellbeing, ultimately improving the quality of life for community members.
Communities choose the project they want to start based on their community’s needs, from a portfolio of ideas on the ChangeX site. Once the applicant has demonstrated their commitment and ability to start the community project by successfully completing a 30 Day Challenge on the ChangeX website, ChangeX will provide funding, information guides and support to give the applicant the best chance of success. In addition, once the applicant has demonstrated the impact the new project is having in their community, they will receive a further installment of funding to support the maintenance of the project. All projects should be managed in an inclusive and welcoming manner and any events organised as part of your project should comply with any relevant public health guidance.
The following criteria must be met by all applicants:
Projects must take place within the Republic of Ireland
If applying for a grant greater than €6,000, the applicant must be a registered charity in Ireland (CHY number will need to be provided).
Applicants must be at least 18 years old or have the permission of a guardian to apply for funding.
Applicants must provide a certificate of clean criminal record or equivalent or in the case of organizations, registration of the legal entity.
Applicants must not be political figures or organisations.
