PEACEPLUS Youth Programme
Online Pre-Development Support Workshop
Occurred on Friday 10th December, 10am-11:30am
The EU PEACEPLUS Programme aims to build prosperity and peace within Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland.
An Overview of the EU PEACEPLUS Programme can be found here.
Prior to any funding call to PEACEPLUS being opened, the SEUPB co-ordinated an online pre-development support workshop targeted specifically at organisations who work with marginalised, disadvantaged, or excluded young people aged 14-24 years, who have deep social and emotional needs and are at risk of becoming involved in anti-social behaviour, violence or dissident activity.
This forms part of Investment Area 3.2 of the new EU PEACEPLUS Programme. The key objective of Investment Area 3.2 is to ‘enhance the capacity of children and young people to form positive and effective relationships with others of a different background, develop their confidence and future potential, and contribute towards the creation of a more cohesive society’.
The SEUPB anticipates that a funding call for this Investment Area will open in Spring 2022. In advance of this, the online workshop will provide preliminary guidance to help potential applicants build their confidence, knowledge, and capacity so that they are best placed to make quality applications with a strong focus on outcomes that meet programme targets.
An indicative budget allocation has been set at €47m for this Investment Area. (Please note however, that the PEACEPLUS Programme is not fully approved and could be subject to change). It is anticipated that the majority of this funding will be invested in large-scale, multi-partner, cross-border collaborative projects.
The online workshop:
- Explained the requirements of Area 3.2 and some of the details that are likely to be in the call including: types of project activities expected, area of impact, the outputs for the young people concerned;
- Outlined the key components of a strong application including EU funding requirements, and project management;
- Discussed the financial implications for managing PEACEPLUS funding: capacity, cash flow, reporting; and
- Provided a Q&A opportunity for those in attendance online.
The workshop was aimed specifically at organisations who work with marginalised, disadvantaged, or excluded young people aged 14-24 years, who have deep social and emotional needs and are at risk of becoming involved in anti-social behaviour, violence or dissident activity.

A concept note, capturing high-level details of a project idea, is available below.

The concept note does not form part of the formal application process. Instead, it has been put in place to help guide potential applicants, to strengthen their application (should they decide to make one) and to help with a smoother project implementation process in the event of funding being awarded.
Interested parties are encouraged to complete and submit the concept note, following the workshop, and send it to email@example.com. Completed forms will be accepted up until 31 January 2022. For all queries on the concept note, please use the email address provided above.
