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).

The Next Chapter has its roots in peace and reconciliation and the fact that women are still under-represented in community, political and public life, both North and South of the border. There is no better time to be your own advocate on women's issues!
