EastSide Greenways have launched a brand-new Personal Youth Development programme, called ‘The Legacy Project’. This exciting project is designed for a small group of young people from East Belfast, aged between 16-25years old who are not in education or unemployment.

Their aim is to help build and develop essential life skills, provide support with achieving qualifications & training, and open the doors to exciting employment opportunities!

George Best, arguably the greatest- ever footballer, thrilled the world with his wonderful football skills. George was born and bred in east Belfast and after his move to Manchester United, and elsewhere across the world, he always returned to his home at 16 Burren Way, Cregagh. During these special tours actors, Stephen Beggs and Neil Heaney, will play George at various times of his life, all within the unique venue of George’s 1960s retro-refurbed childhood home. 
 
Numbers are limited, so book early for this popular event to avoid disappointment. 

Step inside the family home of footballing superstar George Best, as it would’ve been in the summer of 1961 when a fifteen-year-old George left to follow his dreams in Manchester. Enjoy flicking through old school reports with an experienced local guide to discover more about Best's early life in east Belfast’s Cregagh Estate. Early booking highly recommended as places are limited.

We have a number of tours for 2023, find out more here>>>www.visiteastside.com/events

Thank you to everyone who attended our Living Wage Awareness Event at East Belfast Network Centre on 22nd September.
 
It was great to hear from the Living Wage Foundation on the accreditation process and local Living Wage accredited employers from the community, private and public sector about the benefits, for employers and employees, of paying the real living wage.

EastSide Partnership requires the services of an experienced financial consultant to explore opportunities for future income generation to support the sustainability of the organisation.

We would like to assess potential opportunities for the EastSide Partnership group of companies to diversify income streams. This will involve analysing the activities of each company/ project and making recommendations on how revenue could be generated from those activities.

Back at the start of the year, we hosted our ‘Strandtown Connections’ in partnership with Strand Stories, an 8-week-long programme exploring the local heritage of Sydenham/Strandtown.
