ARCS Diversionary & Intergenerational Project

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.

Project Description:

This project had two elements: (1) a Friday night youth intervention programme targeting 15 young people in Belvoir and 15 in Braniel estates, and (2) a Tuesday and Thursday Intergenerational programme targeting a total of 30 senior citizens and 50 young people across Braniel and Belvoir Estates

The difference we made:

8 diversionary activities – including 4 weeks of Friday Night physical and sports activities and 4 weeks of street-based youth work, in partnership with the PSNI (monthly meetings to identify hotspots of ASB)

6 intergenerational activities - including bingo, craft and quiz nights with senior citizens in Braniel and Belvoir.
