PEACE IV Programme Launch Event

27 July 2017

The Mayor, Councillor Paul Hamill launches the PEACE IV Programme with the PEACE IV Vice Chair, Valerie Adams.


The Antrim and Newtownabbey PEACE IV Programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, is a unique initiative of the European Union which has been designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.

To launch the new PEACE IV programme and to find out more about the opportunities for everyone, the public are invited to attend Mossley Mill on Tuesday 15 August 2017 at 6.30pm. 

The PEACE IV Partnership has been working on the development of programmes since March 2016; beginning with consultation and engagement sessions, public information events, co-design workshops, focus groups, project design and development, and finally an extensive application and assessment process with the Special European Union Programmes Body.

The content of the Antrim and Newtownabbey PEACE IV Local Action Plan has now been agreed by the Northern Ireland Executive and the Irish Government with the overarching priority of supporting peace and reconciliation within three main themes:

  • Children and Young People with a budget of £594,384.89
  • Shared Spaces and Services with a budget of £1,004,282
  • Building Positive Relations with a budget of £1,229,694

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council will be welcoming tender applications from external parties to deliver a range of programmes within these three main themes.  These opportunities will be advertised on E-sourcing NI, E-tenders NI and E-tenders.ie over the next few weeks and months.
