Regional Level Projects (Total Value: €16.4m / ERDF: €13.9m)

Some issues and target groups can be better accommodated through regional level initiatives that transcend local authority boundaries.  These regional initiatives will also facilitate cross-border cooperation.  The Programme will pay particular attention to minority groups and groups who traditionally have been marginalised in society so that opportunities will be created that allow for a greater degree of participation in society.

The Programme will support groups particularly impacted by the legacy of the conflict such as victims and survivors and those communities with low social capital as well as those identifiable groups and networks dealing with specific legacy issues such as young and older people, women, the faith community, those suffering from physical or mental disability arising from the legacy of the violence, ex-prisoners, displaced persons and former members of the security forces.

In all cases, projects will be inclusive in nature and will ensure meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between people of different backgrounds, and which have the capacity to change attitudes and behaviour. Initiatives should evidence a direct commitment to tackling real and complex issues, such as sectarianism and racism.

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 people who think relations between Protestants and Catholics are better than they were five years ago; an increase in the percentage of people who think relations between Protestants and Catholics will be better in five years' time and an increase in the percentage of people who know quite a bit about the culture of some minority ethnic communities. These result indicators will be monitored from information collected by the Northern Ireland Life and Times survey.

Two intertwined hands on turquiose background

Output: 20 regional level projects that result in meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between persons from different communities.

 

The above output can be achieved through the following indicative actions:

  • Projects to reinforce progress towards a peaceful and stable society through the promotion of reconciliation amongst all communities;
  • Projects which build, improve and sustain relationships between communities by addressing issues of trust, prejudice and intolerance.
