Wind Farm Community Fund Northern Ireland

The Wind Farm Community Funds initiative was established by ESB Group with the intention of helping the communities neighbouring our wind farms to become more sustainable through the support of positive local initiatives and activities.
The initiative seeks to address current and emerging issues, needs and opportunities within communities, enriching lives and creating brighter possibilities for local residents. As a part of the initiative, Groundwork NI administers five Northern Ireland community funds which surround wind farms owned by subsidiary companies of ESB.

If your project meets the essential criteria outlined in the fund guidelines, please complete and submit the online application form, ensuring that all relevant sections are addressed and that all the required supplementary documentation is uploaded.
