Suffolk Lenadoon Interface Group (SLIG) is a community development organisation based in Belfast working on regeneration and peacebuilding. SLIG is a joint initiative of the Suffolk Community Forum and the Lenadoon Community Forum. Both communities suffer from serious deprivation.
Until 1996 there had there had been no contact between Suffolk and Lenadoon for over 20 years. Despite the legacy of decades of conflict, suspicion and mistrust, community leaders came together with a determination to create a better future for their communities, leading to the creation of SLIG. Being deeply rooted in the communities, the organisation looks for community-based solutions to social justice, equality, regeneration and conflict transformation issues.
