The Positive Learning project is supported through €1.8m of funding from the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (

Positive Learning provides vocational training to people who find themselves on the margins of society, including people who are:

  • disadvantaged
  • homeless
  • have an offending history
  • are long-term unemployed
  • or who are refugees.

Central to the project’s work is that people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds are brought together in the programme with a view to improving good relations.

Areas explored during the 26-week programme include community, prejudices, identity, and diversity, while skills development is also on offer in order to support participants as they aim to reintegrate into their community, including:

  • Joinery
  • ICT
  • Plumbing
  • Horticulture
  • Catering

Project partners include:

Match-funding for the project has been provided by the Executive Office in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland.
