About the Project

The Greenway project was one element of the Increasing Community Services cluster project which sought to increase community provision in areas of deprivation in the SIF Belfast East zone. The project involved the expansion of Greenway Women’s Centre (GWC) into refurbished facilities which will enable enhanced delivery of vital community services and facilities including increased childcare, family support, training, after-schools provision, additional meeting rooms and office space and an enclosed play area outside the building.  

Progress to date

The project has completed construction and is operational.  The refurbishment and expansion has allowed the group to enhance its provision of existing community services to allow continued social interaction, education, family support and personal development for further community benefit in the Cregagh area and wider SIF Belfast East Zone.


Monitoring and evaluation of all Social Investment Fund projects is carried out using “Outcomes Based Accountability” (OBA). Where SIF has funded capital works, the project provides quarterly “post-capital” data for a period of 3 years which details the positive impacts enabled by the capital works undertaken. The final capital infographic below highlights some of the key impacts of the project to date. The Greenway project is in the early stages of post capital OBA returns and OBA data collection is ongoing for the final post capital infographic.
