Nerve Centre Benefits from Community Relations Council Funding

There are a total of 29 projects receiving support of £1.2million.

The 2019/20 core funding portfolio will cover the whole region and address the key themes of the T:BUC strategy.

Speaking at the official launch of this year’s scheme, Community Relations Council Chair, Peter Osborne, said:

“Reconciliation is about relationship building on the ground. It is hard, challenging work made more so within the current environment. We are deeply appreciative of the courage, resolve and commitment of these organisations and their staff as they do their part to build a better future for us all.”

The Core Funding Scheme contributes towards the salary and running costs of organisations considered of strategic importance in promoting community relations work in Northern Ireland. This work includes peace and reconciliation centres; those involved in mediation and conflict transformation training; community arts; church-based work on reconciliation themes; cultural organisations and interface projects.
