Our Generation – Playboard NI

OUR Generation is an exciting new project taking place across the Urban Village areas of Northern Ireland, and the Border Region of Ireland.

PlayBoard NI will be delivering training and play sessions to participating School Age Childcare providers within the Urban Villages in North, South, East and West Belfast, and Derry/Londonderry.

Our focus is on the critical role of play to support childhood resilience and to positively address differences. Through a range of practical and playful exercises our programme will focus on breaking down barriers caused by transgenerational traumas and adverse experiences such as those caused by The Troubles.

With mental health in focus in the run up to #WorldMentalHealthDay tomorrow you can read more on how the programme will support positive mental health and well-being in children and young people at www.playboard.org/our-generation-launches/

If you deliver School Age Childcare in the Urban Village areas, or in receipt of Urban Village Input and would like further information on the programme please get in touch by emailing Katherine.lindsay@playboard.co.uk

OUR Generation is comprised of seven partner organisations and funded through the EU’s PEACE IV programme and managed by SEUPB. 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.
