Marginalisation – As we understand it, this is not simply an experience of feeling on the margins, but a power structure that excludes. Our programmes support people who find themselves being pushed to the edges, and also works with groups to help them deepen their practice of inclusion, and challenge power structures that lead to exclusion.
If you want more information on any of the following programmes, please contact our Programme Manager: Marginalisation, Denise Bradley by email email@example.com or call 028 9050 8080.

A peacebuilding project in the Causeway Coast and Glens Council area, looking at the experience of the BME community and working on ways to build community integration. Partners: Building Community Resource Centre, Institute of Conflict Research, and EU Peace IV.
Living Well Together
In partnership with the Education Authority, we are now a recognised outdoor learning centre with a specialism in Good Relations, diversity and citizenship. In the next few years we will be working with hundreds of young people from across NI on the topic of ‘living well together’.
Our founder Ray Davey said “Corrymeela is Story”. For over 50 years, we have used narrative approaches to address difference and implement change in society. Hearing stories and learning from stories is at the heart of our work in addressing contemporary conflicts, sectarianism and marginalisation. Every year we run a Summer School designed to showcase our contemporary learning as well as gather a community of international practitioners. Find out more about our Storywork residential.
