Grantmaking LCCC CENI

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council appointed CENI to review its cultural and community grants. Working with council staff, elected members and local groups, we created a consistent and streamlined approach that focusses on supporting community and cultural outcomes.


Live testing of the new application and assessment system kicked off in May with the launch of the ‘Good Relations & Cultural Identity’ grant scheme.
