Privacy Policy

This policy sets out how Corrymeela aims to repay the trust you have shown by sharing your personal data with the charity.

Who are ‘we’?

In this policy, whenever you see the words ‘We’, ‘Us’ or ‘Our’, it refers to The Corrymeela Community, a registered charity with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland.

The Corrymeela Community is Northern Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation organisation.  Our programmes work with children, youth, schools, family, volunteering and faith based initiatives that support a Shared Future here. We promote knowledge and understanding of difference and support equality and diversity to reduce discrimination. Around 10,000 people a year come through our residential centre in Ballycastle as well as thousands more engaged by our schools and community outreach. Our Residential centre is a unique space where we can model a different way – a way to have respect and dialogue with those who are different. It gives people a direct experience of an ‘other space’– a place to imagine, experience and learn, and most importantly take that experience away with them. It is also a safe space where we can facilitate private meetings with politicians allowing them to have conversations that are impossible publicly. Our centre is also acting as a catalyst for global change. We are building global partnerships and our learning and experience is being used across the world. We currently work with15 US universities as well as most of the major universities in Ireland. 

Our full legal information is:
The Corrymeela Community, a charity registered with the Charities Commission for Northern Ireland (NIC101597).
The Corrymeela Community (being a company limited by guarantee and not having a share capital).
Our registered office is 5 Drumaroan Road, Ballycastle, County Antrim BT54 6QU.
