  • SEUPB – PEACE IV

    Our role is to help facilitate the positive impact that European Regional Development Funding will have on the lives of people living across Northern Ireland, the Border Region of Ireland and Western Scotland.

    The SEUPB is responsible for the implementation of the EU’s PEACE IV (€270m) and INTERREG VA (€283m) Programmes. We also have a signposting role to promote involvement in the INTERREG VB Transnational and INTERREG VC Interregional Programmes.

    We are one of the six cross-border Bodies set up under the “Agreement between the Government of Ireland and the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland establishing implementing bodies” signed on 8 March 1999 (the British-Irish Agreement of 8 March 1999).

    The Agreement was given domestic effect, North and South, by means of the North/South Co-operation (Implementation Bodies) (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 and the British-Irish Agreement Act 1999 respectively.

    We are responsible to two Sponsor Departments, the Department of Finance in Northern Ireland and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in Ireland along with the European Commission and the North South Ministerial Council.

  • Northern Ireland Executive

    OUR Generation has been match funded by the Northern Ireland Executive

    The Northern Ireland Executive Committee runs the devolved government in Northern Ireland. It is made up of the First Minister, the deputy First Minister, two Junior Ministers and eight other government ministers.

    The Executive exercises executive authority on behalf of the Northern Ireland Assembly. It takes decisions on significant and controversial issues – matters which cut across the responsibility of two or more ministers, or which require a common Executive position, and on legislation proposed by ministers.

     

    The Executive also agrees a Programme for Government and the Northern Ireland budget for approval by the Assembly.

  • Government of Ireland

    OUR Generation has been match funded by the Government of Ireland through its Department of Rural and Cultural Development.

    The Government of Ireland / Rialtas na hÉireann is the cabinet that exercises executive authority in Ireland.

    The Constitution of Ireland vests executive authority in a government which is headed by the Taoiseach, the head of government. The government is composed of ministers, all of whom must be members of the Oireachtas, which consists of Dáil Éireann and Seanad Éireann.

  • HSE

    The HSE is a large organisation of over 100,000 people, whose job is to run all of the public health services in Ireland.

    The HSE manages services through a structure designed to put patients and clients at the centre of the organisation.

    The OUR Generation Project falls within CHO Area 1: Donegal, Sligo/Leitrim/West Cavan, Cavan/Monaghan.

  • T:buc

    The ‘Together: Building a United Community’ (T:BUC) Strategy, published on 23 May 2013, reflects the Executive’s commitment to improving community relations and continuing the journey towards a more united and shared society.

    The Urban Villages Initiative is a headline action within the NI Executive’s Together: Building a United Community (TBUC) Strategy, and is overseen by the Executive Office. It is designed to improve good relations outcomes and develop thriving places where there has been a history of deprivation and community tension.

    There are three inter-connected aims:

    1. To foster positive Community Identities;
    2. To build Community Capacity; and
    3. To improve the Physical Environment.

    The five Urban Villages areas are:

    • Ardoyne and Greater Ballysillan (North Belfast)
    • Colin (West Belfast)
    • EastSide (East Belfast)
    • Sandy Row, Donegall Pass and the Markets areas (South Belfast)
    • The Bogside, Fountain and Bishop Street (Derry~Londonderry)
