bric Partners

The bric Programme is being delivered through a unique partnership between the Rural Development Council, TIDES Training and the Housing Executive.

Together, these partners are working to empower NIHE staff by encouraging them to promote a greater degree of sharing within the segregated social housing market. This is being achieved by focusing on the benefits of building peace and reconciliation capacity within the organisation and facilitating the promotion of a shared society.
