About T:BUC Camps

The T:BUC Camps Programme is a headline action described in the Together: Building a United Community (T:BUC) strategy which was announced by the Northern Ireland Executive in 2013. The relevant strategic aim relating to young people is:

To continue to improve attitudes amongst our young people and to build a community where they can play a full and active role in building good relations.”

The Programme is about building positive relations and long lasting friendships among young people across all parts of the Northern Ireland community. Camps must therefore bring diverse groups together to get to know each other, try new experiences and help build longer term relationships between young people.

Good Relations learning must be at the heart of every Camp.

T:BUC Camps – Funding Forums and Applications Workshops

The Education Authority will be running workshops to support groups to develop their programmes and assist with applications.

Attendance at EA support workshops is strongly encouraged as it will allow you to meet and network with other possible applicants, speak directly to members of the T:BUC team, receive support and guidance on programming, good relations, resourcing and how to make a good quality application to the T:BUC Camps Programme.

In light of ongoing Covid 19 restrictions, these will be held online via Zoom.  A place at the EA Support workshops can be booked online at www.eafunding.eventbrite.co.uk See below for dates and times.

It is essential that a place is pre-booked, in order to provide log in details for the workshop. One on one sessions will be facilitated through breakout rooms at the end of each of these sessions on request. Further workshops will be held if numbers are greater than current availability.
