CIP is committed to build bridges between diverse communities through the medium of education, sport, cultural and information exchange.

CIP, (Community Intercultural Programme) came into existence in Sept 2006 in response to the emerging needs of Ethnic Communities in the Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon area. CIP is committed to supporting people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, enabling them to fully integrate into and participate in an equitable society which represents difference and celebrates diversity

Vision

 CIP’s vision is of an inclusive society, which contributes to social cohesion and ensures equality for all.

Values

•  CIP actively promotes equality, values diversity and opposes discrimination in all its forms.

•  CIP is an independent association, is non party political and is committed to an active anti- sectarian approach to its work

•  CIP is committed to collective action informed by people’s experiences and an analysis of their circumstances. Therefore CIP’s primary method of operation is supporting and encouraging community action amongst disadvantaged communities.

•  CIP will conduct its affairs in an honest, open, transparent and accountable way to its members.

•  CIP values its volunteers as a key resource of the organisation.
