We are responsible for delivering the £4.7 million EU funded 'PEACE IV Action Plan'. The funding supports a number of locally based projects and initiatives that promote positive relations between people from different communities and backgrounds.
The PEACE IV Action Plan focuses on three key areas:
- Building Positive Relations
- Children and Young People
- Shared Spaces and Services
The support is used in the delivery of local community initiatives for children and young people involving sports, arts, culture and language. It will help make public space in cities, towns and villages more inclusive and facilitate programmes for shared space. The funding is also used to assist conflict resolution activities at a local level to encourage positive interaction between residents and groups from divided neighbourhoods.
