The Grassroots programme will be replaced by ‘Caring Communities’ grants, details of which will be announced on 21 January. Throughout 2012 the Foundation consulted with its stakeholders to assess where grants can make the best impact in the Irish community and voluntary sector. It used a grantee survey and workshop, sector research, donor survey and review of its grantmaking to achieve this.
