Dreamscheme helps transform the lives of young people by providing a varied programme of positive projects and support opportunities:
Our Safe Me, Safe You project was funded by Belfast Police & Community Safety Partnership and benefited more than 55 young people from Braniel, Belvoir and Milltown. The project encouraged young people to stay out of trouble and provided weekly opportunities to get involved in safe and healthy activities.
The Summer in the City Project was funded by the Belfast City Council's Good Relations Grant, and provided relationship building opportunities for young people from our Botanic, Braniel and Milltown groups.
With funding from Department of Justice (Assets Recovery Community Scheme) we were able to deliver a three month Diversionary and Intergenerational project for 41 young people from Braniel and Belvoir.
The Mind Yourself project was funded by the CLEAR Project and supported by the Public Health Agency. Through the project, Dreamscheme provided opportunities for young people to benefit from mentoring, mental health awareness workshops and a programme of ‘Take 5 steps to wellbeing’ activities.
