Belfast Interface Project

Belfast Interface Project

Our overall vision is of a Belfast in which todays interface communities are free of tension intimidation and violence both within and between communities.

Our overall vision is of a Belfast in which today's interface communities:

  • Are free of tension, intimidation and violence both within and between communities;
  • Have come to terms with legacies of the past;
  • Are socially and economically vibrant, within an attractive physical environment;
  • Enjoy freedom of movement in accessing facilities and services;
  • Have respect for cultural difference and diversity.


The Inner East Outer West Project

  • Develop relationships across interfaces in Inner East and Outer West Belfast.
  • Develop collaborative working relationships amongst community and voluntary groups across   each interface and between areas, and with BCC's Youth Engagement Programme.
  • Increase levels of mobility amongst project participants.
  • Reduce levels of inter-community tension and violence at these interfaces.

The Youth Engagement Project

  • Engage with "hard to reach" young people involved in antisocial behaviour, or on the periphery of, local dissident/paramilitary/emerging gang culture to reduce incidents of violence and create alternative pathways to improve their life chances through the delivery of specific interventions.
  • Improve the quality of life in communities at interface areas by addressing issues with anti-social behaviour and disengaged youth
  • Deliver a focused and specific project of intervention and support to identified young people
  • Support the development of an all agency, sustainable model of collaborative youth engagement, that will seek to address issues at interface areas in a more effective way
  • Help to support delivery of an approach by commissioning the community and voluntary sector to deliver projects that will address gaps in statutory service provision and will enable “on the ground” targeted support
