Black Mountain Shared Space Project (BMSSP) works to improve both intra-community capacity, well-being and cross-community relationships in the Upper Springfield Road/Upper Shankill interface area of West Belfast. The project works in both the Protestant/Unionist/Loyalist Highfield and Springmartin estates and within the Catholic/Nationalist/Republican Moyard/Springfield Park and Sliabh Dubh areas of West Belfast.
The Project has adopted a community development approach to improve cross-community relations in the area and to enhance inclusive peace building. Work is progressed through a range of initiatives which include conflict resolution, capacity building, confidence and skill building which will help increase employment opportunities in an area where unemployment and lack of opportunities is endemic.
