Find out about the Southern Social Investment Fund zone and the projects located in this area.

How the investment zones were decided

Four zones identified outside Belfast are broadly the same as the areas where the health and social care trusts operate. Four zones are in the Greater Belfast area and are largely based on Northern Ireland Assembly constituencies. One zone is aligned with the Derry City Council boundary.

Eligibility for funding

The Steering Groups for each zone were asked to identify areas eligible to avail of SIF interventions related to the 4 objectives. It was agreed that the following measures would be used to decide which areas were eligible:

  • areas within the top 10 per cent of most deprived Super Output Areas on the Multiple Deprivation Measure 2010
  • areas within the top 20 per cent of most deprived Super Output Areas on the key indicators of income, employment, education and health
  • areas which could provide independently verified and robust evidence of objective need linked to the four strategic objectives of the Social Investment Fund (as detailed above)
