What is the
Next Chapter?

It's a programme for women of all backgrounds and ages across Northern Ireland and the border counties of the Republic of Ireland to develop their ideas, build communities and support the transition out of conflict.

A project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
