Ethnic Minority Support Programme in Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council and Fermanagh District Council
STEP, Dungannon are delivering an Ethnic Minority Support Programme as part of Peace III in the Fermanagh district to support community groups and organisations trying to engage with the ethnic minorities in the area. They are calling on community groups and organisations who would be interested in delivering small engagement projects before 21 March 2011. Eight groups in the Fermanagh area will receive funding (the Dungannon round has been fulfilled and the closing date has been extended for the Fermanagh area). The projects which will be funded will demonstrate clear aims to develop in inter-ethnic and/or cross-community activities and engage BME members who do not already engage with the group/organisation.
£300 support available for projects that involve engagement of the BME population.
£500 support available for projects that involve engagement of the BME population and both sides of the religious divide.
