“This is welcome additional funding boost for these groups who give so much to those in need and who have found fundraising very difficult during COVID-19”
“The COVID-19 Stability fund was set up by Michael Ring and I when Ministers in the Department of Community & Rural Affairs and the objective of the fund was to help charities around the country and I welcome the fact that €40 million has been distributed in this fund to charities around the country. The funding has been taken from the Dormant Accounts fund and it is only correct that we continue to support Charities in their time of need”.
