Dreamscheme helps transform the lives of young people by providing a varied programme of positive projects and support opportunities:
Over the past few months, our Milltown Dreamscheme group was engaged in a new project called "Survive to Thrive", funded by Belfast City Council's Police & Community Safety Partnership. This included a series of workshops and activities based around the prevention of anti-social behavior in the Milltown/Belvoir Areas.
As part of our 2017 Intervention programme, funded by Education Authority (EA), young people from Braniel and Belvoir enjoyed a range of diversionary and developmental activities during the summer, including a fantastic residential trip to Tollymore Outdoor Centre.
Dreamscheme's Summer Intervention programme for Braniel and Milltown/Belvoir was funded by Belfast City Council's Police and Community Safety Partnership.
This project provided practical learning opportunities for young people from Mencap and Dreamscheme.The project provided opportunities for young people from both groups to build relationships, engage in positive activities and develop life skills together.
The Heart of Belfast project was funded by Hope for Youth NI, and involved young people from Dreamscheme writing, performing and filming a spoken word video about Belfast.
Dreamscheme's Be More project was funded by Belfast Police and Community Safety Partnership. Through the project, Dreamscheme aimed to reduce anti-social behaviour, prevent crime and dangerous choices, and help young people reach their potential.
The Belfast Stories Project was funded by Belfast City Council's Art & Heritage Fund.
The project involved young people from Milltown, Belvoir and Braniel capturing stories from the past and creating an online video collection.
We are launching a new and exciting Young Leaders Programme for Dreamschemers who are sixth form age. The programme will run on the last Friday of every month.
The Re-Build the City project sought to help young people understand their life road map and important factors along the way, while also providing new opportunities for community engagement and dialogue with groups from different backgrounds and traditions.
