PPR has worked with groups of children and young people on the Lower Shankill area of West Belfast, one of the most deprived areas of Northern Ireland. The Lower Shankill Residents Voice campaigned on their right to play, highlighting how their urban environment and lack of facilities hinders the enjoyment of their rights. The group achieved the opening of a youth centre in their area from 1 night a week to five nights a week, ensured a more efficient cleansing schedule for the estate. Their work shaped regeneration plans for the Lower Shankill, ensuring that residents voices were heard and listened to in the process.
