Mid Ulster counselling group boosted by grant totalling almost £50,000

Mid-Ulster Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, based in Coalisland, has been awarded a large grant of £49,976 from Halifax Foundation for NI to help provide services to people suffering trauma or in despair throughout the Mid-Ulster area.

The grant is part of Halifax Foundation’s commitment of £678,439 funding to 38 charities providing vital services for some of the most disadvantaged people in the community.

The Foundation has released two special grant streams to target groups most affected by the pandemic at a time when charities are under unprecedented pressure.

The Large Grants Scheme will provide funding up to £50,000 over the next three years for ten charities working in areas such as mental health and domestic abuse while the Special Initiatives Scheme gives up to £20,000 to seven major organisations supporting the sector over two years.
