Communities for all ages: East Belfast PCSP

Communities for all ages is a project supported by Linking Generations NI and East Belfast Policing and Community Safety Partnership.
It brought together local community groups in East Belfast (Lower Beersbridge and Willowfield Resident’s Group, Greenville Court residents (Clanmil Housing) and Elmgrove Primary school) to build a range of community based projects such as a community clean up and a creative arts project facilitated by local artist Shauna Magowan.

Bringing generations together within communities is proven to enhance mutual respect as well as a sense of trust and security by challenging age stereotyping and combating social isolation. Overall, projects such as this support all ages to feel valued and connected within the local area.
