Dublin Bus employees joined with previous winning groups to announce the launch of the 2022 Community Spirit Awards, inviting local voluntary and community groups to apply. Any group located in an area served by Dublin Bus can apply for a grant of €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000. For more information and to apply visit www.dublinbus.ie
Since 2004, the Community Spirit Awards have helped over 2,000 groups and projects from local voluntary and community organisations who work selflessly and tirelessly to raise community spirit and improve the lives of those in their locality. Last year Community Cancer Caregivers, Down Syndrome Centre and Glasnevin Boxing Club were three of 65 winning groups and they spoke with Dublin Bus employees to encourage applications for this year’s awards.

Since 2004, the Community Spirit Awards have amplified the actions of deserving groups who help their local communities to thrive. Since 2010 alone, the awards have helped 425 groups who work with children and young people such as youth clubs, arts and drama groups and hospital support groups. Sports clubs have also been a major recipient of the awards with 163 clubs, from GAA to Taekwon-do, having received an award. The awards have also funded 154 groups supporting people with disabilities, 140 education organisations, 83 active age groups and 133 environmental groups all across the Greater Dublin Area.
Application forms for the 2022 Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards are available now at www.dublinbus.ie and will be accepted up to 17.00 on Friday 15 July, 2022. Successful applicants will be notified by Dublin Bus from autumn onwards.
