About Us - Peace Walls Programme 2016

The SLIG Peace Walls Project is a community led project
ran from April 2013 to December 2016. The project was
funded by the International Fund for Ireland and
managed by Suffolk Lenadoon Interface Group. We
worked towards addressing issues at the ten identified
Peace Walls Sites within the Suffolk Community and
bordering communities: Helenswood, Arlington,
Trenchard/ Blacks Road, Ladybrook, Willowvale
Crescent, Suffolk Avenue/Drive/Crescent and Lenadoon.
The issues ranged from physical, environmental or antisocial/
communal and were highlighted to the project
through residents living near each of the sites. The
project was committed to engaging all of the residents
impacted by the peace walls structures to reassure them
that no changes will be made to any site, no matter how
small the change, without community agreement from
those impacted by that site.
The project engaged residents in meetings and through a survey carried out in all the communities
involved. This survey allowed us to identify needs at
each site; the issues impacting residents at each site, and
what generally was being felt by the community at that
time. The data helpted to ensure that we were working towards positive
changes for each community. We had fully trained
volunteers and staff compiling the surveys and
collecting data door to door.
We committed to
informing residents of everything that was happening
throughout our project and did so on a
regular basis.
