- Northern Ireland Evaluation Reports
In Northern Ireland, Fair Share Trust was managed by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland (CFNI) and ran from 2003-2010. It invested £2.3 million in projects across 49 electoral wards through a model that CFNI called “consensus grantmaking”. This initial commitment brought over £500k of additional investments to the areas from a variety of public, private and voluntary & community sector sources, representing 22% of the original funds. Throughout the programme, CFNI commissioned several evaluations to look at the impact of this model in the communities that received funding and these have been now analysed as a whole and summarised in a report that shares the learning of Fair Share Trust in Northern Ireland.
