LISBURN & CASTLEREAGH COMMUNITIES INVITED TO BENEFIT FROM £2.3 MILLION EUROPEAN PEACE IV FUNDING.

The Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Peace IV Partnership is delighted to invite communities, groups and individuals from the Lisburn Castlereagh area to register for the launch event celebrating £2.376m worth of funding under the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme.
This funding will be used to support locally-based projects and initiatives that will promote positive relations between people from different communities and backgrounds and will be focused on three key areas: ‘Children & Young People’, ‘Shared Spaces and Services’ and ‘Building Positive Relations’.

The launch aims to give different organisations, volunteers and individuals in the Council area, the opportunity to develop a better understanding of projects that are funded under the local Peace IV Plan, and how they can engage in these and hear about the benefits such projects can achieve. The Programme, which was developed in direct consultation with local communities offers a variety of ways to become involved in peace building initiatives.

The launch event will be held in the Island Hall, Civic Centre, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn at 10.30am on Thursday 14th September 2017. Spaces are limited so to register please email Rosemary Burns at rosemary.burns@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk by Wednesday 6th September or visit www.lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk for more information.
