We promise you will be encouraged that peace and reconciliation work is alive and well in our council area…

5. NW Community Network Funding Fair - Thursday 20th June 10:00am – 12pm
Holywell Building, DCCP, 10-14 Bishop St. This is not a PEACE IV event but we’re including it here as it may help some of our projects find further funding avenues to sustain their work after PEACE IV funding has ended.  It’s an opportunity to hear about the latest funding on offer face to face from a range of funding bodies. 

Derry City and Strabane District Council’s PEACE IV Programme is a project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
