Who are we?

Ulster Garden Villages Limited was established under the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts (Northern Ireland) in 1946 with the principal objective of providing good quality housing and associated amenities for the disadvantaged and aged.

Since that time Government's approach to housing has changed dramatically and in Northern Ireland the establishment of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and the Housing Association movement has largely catered for housing needs.

In 1983 the Committee of Management of Ulster Garden Villages took the necessary steps to convert the Society into a charity and under its amended regulations empowered it to transfer from reserves to a Common Fund such amounts to be available for distribution for general charitable purposes, as the Committee shall from time to time determine.

The Common Fund

The Society primarily allocates funds to projects within Northern Ireland that will have a positive impact in Northern Ireland.

National Charities making an approach to the Society should relate their appeal to specific needs or projects within Northern Ireland.

Funds are not given retrospectively and it is not usual to give grants for office expenses or administrative staff salaries. In addition to outright grants, assistance may be given by way of loans which may carry certain conditions at the discretion of the Committee.
