Steps Project

The Steps Project is funded by the Department for Communities (formerly Department Social Development (DSD)) Neighbourhood Renewal. It aims to enhance the transferrable skills, educational attainment, employment opportunities and volunteering for women from the Kilcooley Neighbourhood Renewal Area.
