People tackling eyesores in their area will now be able to apply for grants under a new scheme launched by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

The new Live Here, Love Here small grants scheme will support volunteers who want to roll up their sleeves to improve their environment and take pride in where they live.

The scheme is designed to tackle issues such as poor environmental quality, littering and dilapidation, particularly in coastal areas.

The small grants scheme is open to volunteer groups operating in the participating council areas: Antrim, Ards, Ballymena, Belfast, Dungannon and South Tyrone, Fermanagh, Larne, Limavady, Newry and Mourne, Newtownabbey and Strabane.

Grants are open to constituted volunteer groups taking action to improve their local environment or community. The deadline for applications is September 22 and groups will need to complete a simple application form.
