"If we change the story we tell ourselves then it leaves everything open to possibilities." Charity worker, Derry-Londonderry

Our Northern Ireland places programme - Amplify NI, began in 2014 with a community listening exercise in Belfast, Derry-Londonderry and Enniskillen.

We have engaged with hundreds of people to understand more about shared values, challenges and aspirations.

These emerging stories in Northern Ireland help us to understand our strengths and challenges, but they also tell us about the sorts of values, hopes and aspirations that we as a place and people here would like to associate with and work towards into the future. Amplify NI are developing these new narratives of what is possible, and the actions, new ideas and innovations that are emerging are the vehicle for change.

As part of that process we run our Accelerator programme to support these new ideas for social change to develop and gain traction. It is specifically focused around developing social innovations from within the community & voluntary, public and private sector, as well as brand new ‘grassroots’ ideas from individuals within the local communities across NI.  

We want to promote self-confidence, hope and bold aspirations. We are supporting people and organisations with the drive and potential to kick start new projects and ideas. We have worked alongside over 60 innovations so far and have provided intensive training and project acceleration support, and funding/expert advice opportunities through showcase days .

Amplify NI: Connecting new narratives with innovative ideas to create together a place we are all proud of and where everyone thrives.
