Don’t overlook us if you’ve never heard of us.
Since the 1860s Social Concern has been involved in promoting and spreading the concept and good practices of social justice and work to combat the effects of alcohol and substance misuse in society.
In April 2000 the working focus of the charity was changed and directed exclusively to providing grant support to charities and not-for-profit organisations that share our core values and objectives and continue and develop our long experience
Social Concern makes grants available to third sector organisations involved in activities ranging from direct service delivery to groups lobbying for social justice and developments in the criminal justice system.
Social Concern is particularly supportive of innovative ideas which – with some encouragement and financial support – can be turned into highly effective and intelligent resources delivering much needed structured care and help.
For the last fourteen years, Social Concern has helped make the difference to a wide variety of charity project initiatives by creative and direct use of its modest funds and by enabling a variety of projects to successfully lobby for wider funding support from Trusts and other funding bodies.
