Lottery Funding

Funding boost for L’Arche from Big Lottery!

L’Arche Belfast is one of four groups across Northern Ireland to share funding of over £2.3 million through the Big Lottery’s Empowering Young People programme.

L’Arche Belfast received £573,164 for their four year Grow Cook Cater project. The project is helping our young people with learning disabilities feel more confident and develop their skills for independent living, volunteering and employment.  Activities include growing fruit and vegetables, cooking, taking part in social activities, and completing work placements.

This Big Lottery Funding will be utilised to create training and employment via Root Soup and Green Buds Allotment for L’Arche young people.
