The AmplifyNI Scaling Accelerator

Date: 16 November 2015

The AmplifyNI Scaling Accelerator is an innovation support programme to rapidly accelerate the growth of new solutions to social problems in Northern Ireland, funded by the Department of Social Development. We use a proven methodology to help social innovations become more impactful and sustainable. We recruit ambitious teams who have developed an innovative idea, demonstrated it works and have delivered positive social impact.

We are looking to support teams focussed on delivering social change in Northern Ireland through action on one or more of the following themes:

  • Improving outcomes for disadvantaged young people
  • Tackling drivers of household poverty and debt
  • Increasing employment opportunities for people at high risk of worklessness
  • Reducing inequalities in health and wellbeing

You may be

  • A social enterprise
  • A campaign or social movement
  • An innovative project within an existing voluntary, community, public or private organisation
  • A strategic partnership
