Business & Corporate


Building on 20 years of experience in the administration of funding from national and EU sources, SECAD began administering community funds in 2015. In a relatively short period of time we have expanded our community fund capability and now provide Grant Making Services to a number of organisations.

As a well established Local Development Company, SECAD has an excellent understanding of community development, which informs all aspects of our GMO work.

SECAD can assist with the initial establishment of a Community Fund, in addition to ongoing management and implementation. With the development of an online application form, SECAD has created a simple to use application portal, through which community groups may apply for support.

Services which can be provided are as follows:

  • Implementation, management and administration of Community Benefit Funds
  • Establishment and support of Community Liaison / Grant Making Panels
  • Coordination of Public Relations strategy regarding fund launch
  • Development and maintenance of community fund website
  • Capacity building programme for community liaison / grant making panels
  • Information events / open evenings to support development of applications
