Fermanagh and Omagh PEACE IV Local Action Plan Information Events

Published: 6th September 2017

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will host a series of information events over the coming weeks to promote the range of programmes that will be delivered through the PEACE IV Local Action Plan for the district.

The Action Plan provides opportunities for local communities within the district to participate in activities to promote positive relations between people from different backgrounds.  The programme is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special European Union Programmes Body (SEUPB).

The Action Plan will support 15 programmes or initiatives across three key strands – Children and Young People, Shared Spaces and Services and Building Positive Relations through a range of activities, such as, arts and heritage, language support, community development and sport. In addition, a number of small resource allocations will be available for communities to re-image or enhance an existing space to promote positive cross community interaction and create a visible legacy of the PEACE IV Programme.

Councillor Robert Irvine, Chair of the PEACE IV Partnership welcomed the recent launch of the Action Plan and said that, ‘the delivery of the Action Plan has the potential to make a positive and lasting impact on our residents. The information events planned for the coming weeks are an opportunity to hear first-hand about the programmes and how to get involved.  The Partnership looks forward to working alongside local communities to ensure the successful delivery of the Action Plan and witnessing the benefits of the investment on the ground and the results achieved”.
