Investment Area 1.3 - Building Positive Relations

The SEUPB are now accepting applications to the PEACEPLUS Programme, Investment Area 1.3 - Building Positive Relations. 

Building Positive Relations is a programme of support for projects which transcend local boundaries and have the potential to achieve significant peace and reconciliation across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland. These projects should involve cross-border dimensions where possible and appropriate to the intervention.

The Programme will place particular emphasis on providing support to those most marginalised within our communities. These include (but this is not an exhaustive list): women; older people; minority and new communities, (including migrants and refugees); those living with disability; those with issues arising from the legacy of the conflict including ex-prisoners and security service personnel; members of the Traveller Community; and those from the LGBTQ+ community.

Objective of this call

This objective will promote positive relations characterised by respect, where cultural diversity is celebrated and people can live, learn and socialise together, free from prejudice, hate and intolerance.

It will result in an increase in the percentage of the programme area population which has relationships with and as such a greater understanding of those from different cultural backgrounds; and feels part of a wider more diverse community.

€35m is available in this call.  Applications to this call must be received no later than 5pm on Thursday 13th June 2024. The SEUPB will not accept applications after this date.
