Men’s Action Network finds funding using GrantTracker

Men’s Action Network, the local charity supporting and promoting the Health and Well-being of men in the North West of Ireland has sourced funding to support their work, using the valuable online funding resource

Michael Lynch, Director of Services and Development at Men’s Action Network said: "NICVA's GrantTracker has been an invaluable tool in helping us identify and match our developmental requirements with funders who might support our work. One such recent case was our successful application to the Big Lottery to support the important role of fathering in society”.
Men’s Action Network is one of three projects working with families in the North West that have been awarded grants totalling £2,091,251 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Supporting Families programme. Other projects are working with families with children who have children with sight loss, autism and physical disability.
Men’s Action Network has been awarded £698,767 to work with Fermanagh Women’s Aid on the five-year Fathering Families project. It is supporting families who may have experienced issues including poverty, separation, divorce, addiction and domestic violence in the Derry/Londonderry, Enniskillen, Dungiven, Magherafelt and Omagh areas to be healthier, happier and stronger. The project is working with a range of other agencies and activities include parenting and communication skills, peer support, play and art therapy and signposting to other services.
