Ulidia Training was set up to improve opportunities for much needed up-skilling and confidence building within marginalised Loyalist communities

  • Ulidia Training (UT) was established in 2014 and is a voluntary community organisation with a constitution. It is currently applying for a Charities Registration Number.

 

  • UT operates from the Ulidian Centre, a shop front premises in Ballymoney, a small town in Country Antrim with a population of around 10,000 people, 80 per cent of which are from a Protestant background (2011 census).

 

  • UT was set up to provide improved opportunities for much needed up-skilling and confidence building within marginalised Loyalist communities living in the previously UDA dominated North Antrim and Londonderry constituency.

 

  • Through the provision of training, education and essential skills, UT has been assisting ex-prisoners, former combatants and their families and supporters as well as young people at risk of offending or criminal recruitment, in improving their employment and social inclusion opportunities.

 

  • UT offers five main strands of activity. -Traditional Skills Training Programme, Cultural Awareness Programme, Major Events Programme, Restorative Justice Programme, Social Enterprise Programme

 

  • Although originally intended as a single identity project, UT has played a central role in the organisation and delivery of a number of cross-community and cross-border events over the last twelve months.

 

  • The organisation has also been integral in calming volatile community situations and improving inter-community relations through meaningful dialogue with Republican and Nationalist representatives from the area.
