The #BEEproject (Building Employment through Education) is an intergenerational programme supporting families through 20 schools across the Northern SIF Zone and through four lifelong learning hubs in Carrickfergus, Newtownabbey, Larne and Moyle.

Funded by the NI Executive’s Social Investment Fund, PeoplePlus NI works in conjunction with Causeway Rural and Urban Network (CRUN) to promote  intergenerational learning and employability, helping break intergenerational transfer of disadvantage from parents with poor literacy, language and numeracy skills to their children.

What is the #BEEproject doing for local schools?

The #BEEproject has been working with 10 primary and 10 post-primary schools in the Northern SIF Zone, providing free breakfast, after-school clubs and more. Schools include:
