PlayBoard is delighted to welcome our new Our Generation team to the organisation and introduce this exciting new project. The Our Generation project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) and is a collaborative partnership between Action Mental Health (lead partner), Youth Action, Cooperation Ireland, Donegal Youth Service, Youth Work Ireland, University of Ulster and PlayBoard NI.
The project will look at, and build on, cross community development which strives to further improve relations between communities. Using play methodology and a playwork approach, PlayBoard will focus on building resilience in children and young people to support their positive mental health and well-being and, to break down barriers caused by trans-generational trauma. This will be achieved by working directly with children and young people, the professionals involved with them as well as their parents and carers.
Keep your eyes peeled for more information and our official brand launch in collaboration with the other partner organisations!
