Pulling down barriers
In 2017, through our four independent charitable Foundations, we helped more than 2,800 charities to do more to tackle disadvantage in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. These included Northern Ireland Rural Women’s Network, a charity that advocates on behalf rural women, highlighting issues they face.
The Trustees of Halifax Foundation Northern Ireland recognised the true potential of this programme in helping Rural Women find their voice and confidence in tackling issues close to their heart such as Poverty and the Economy; Social Isolation and Health and Wellbeing.
