(1) These organisations have a number of branches and the funding for individual branches has been combined for the purposes of the table. Note: The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland (formerly NIVT) also received £1,123,324 through the EU Special Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (Peace I) which supported victims of violence. The Foundation allocated these funds in support of a number of projects for both ex-prisoners and victims. Persons from these groups could benefit from the same project and it is not possible to disaggregate the assistance between the two groups.
