A note on funding -

  • Partners are expected to bring their own resources to support proposals.  Not all events proposed may require or receive financial assistance.  This will be agreed on a case by case basis.
  • Please note, that while we welcome all proposals through this open call process, we are also mindful that we have limited resources to support our amazingly talented population of children and young people in Dublin City.  If proposals are not successful, please do not be disappointed.  We will work hard to help you develop your ideas, give practical assistance and point you in the direction of how to access other funding that might relevant.

    We will:
  • Work with you to promote your Cruinniú na nÓg event to children, young people and families in your area.
  • Provide practical assistance (this will be agreed on an event by event basis where we can match the help we can give to your needs). 
  • Provide financial assistance (as partners are expected to bring their own resources to proposed events, this will be agreed on an event by event basis and only where required/feasible, not all events proposed may require or receive financial assistance).
