We have been awarded funding under Priority 1.1 of the EU PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programme Body to support programmes and projects which are working to create shared space and create positive relations in Belfast.
As part of this work, we're rolling out the Belfast PEACE III Plan. This is a major programme which aims to build positive relations and tackle sectarian and racism.
Phase two of PEACE III
Phase two of the Belfast PEACE
III Plan runs from September 2011 to December 2014 and consists of 10
projects with a combined budget of £4 million. These projects will
support our ongoing work to build positive relations locally.
