“Ulster Carpets is committed to supporting communities across many platforms and Arts & Business NI offers a broad spectrum of opportunities to facilitate this. The awarding of ‘match funding’ from Arts & Business NI’s Investment Programme was a real game changer for our music project with the Ulster Orchestra and Ceara School giving the green light for the involvement of a specialist, trained to help children with complex needs through the therapeutic use of music. The Investment Programme funding and the support of the Arts & Business NI team made a really great project truly amazing!”
