Registration closed
10 June 2021 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm


Join us on our NICVA Facebook page to celebrate the participation and achievements of the Communities in Transition: Building Capacity programme in east Belfast. The event will see the launch of a community development toolkit for The Mount and Ballymacarrett, the premiere of two films and will showcase the many achievements of participants in the programme.

Since the start of the project in March 2020, Communities in Transition has engaged with over 25 groups across The Mount and Ballymacarrett areas of East Belfast, including more than 150 individual Staff, Volunteers, Board members and Trustees, who have participated in almost 120 training programmes and events, developing new skills that they can apply in their workplace, for the benefit of their groups and communities. Project Coordinator for NICVA, Susan Glass said:

This event is about celebrating the success of the groups and individuals who have participated and achieved so much throughout the programme, during what has been a very difficult year.  We will be premiering a short celebration film that highlights some of these successes and it was great to hear the feedback from our participants on how the programme has positively impacted their work.”


Michael Briggs from EBCDA will launch the CiT Community Development Capacity Building Toolkit and Linda Armitage talks about the new Coaching Framework that is now available to community organisations and individuals working in east Belfast. There will also be two short films premiered from Street Soccer NI and Eastside Greenways Legacy project.

Communities in Transition is a project funded by the Executive Office and managed through Co-Operation Ireland. The Building Capacity project in east Belfast has been delivered by Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) with their partners East Belfast Community Development Agency (EBCDA). Since March 2020, the project has supported the development of community and voluntary sector capacity in The Mount and Ballymacarrett areas of East Belfast.
