For anyone interested in applying to our Northern Ireland People's Accelerator.
What is Amplify?
Amplify NI is a growing collection of people who are taking action to make Northern Ireland a fairer place. We are building on the shared strengths in communities across Northern Ireland and challenging the deep-rooted inequalities that exist. By listening to people’s stories, amplifying voices that don’t usually get heard, and supporting innovative ideas and approaches towards change, we can collectively create a more just place for everyone to live.

What is the Accelerator?
Throughout March to June 2017, Amplify NI will be supporting a wide range of projects, enterprises and campaigns through a programme of social innovation support. Over the course of 5 FREE one-day workshops, we’ll help you to develop your idea and form a plan for how it can become sustainable.
By taking part in these sessions, you will have the opportunity to:
- Meet and work with other people who are leading projects, campaigns or enterprises that make their communities fairer places to live
- Develop an appropriate business model that clearly demonstrates the purpose of your project or idea and why it is needed
- Learn about collaborative design methods that can help you to shape and develop your idea or project with others
- Plan how you can harness the support of your wider communities and the people who benefit from what you do
At the end of the 5 sessions you’ll have the opportunity to meet potential partners, and gain expert advice from specialists, funders and innovators from across Northern Ireland and the UK, as well as discuss and feature your work at a special Showcase Day.
