Ballymena South Cluster

The clusters are a Mid & East Antrim Borough Council led initiative that sees community groups within specific geographic areas coming together to share resources and carry out joint projects for the overall good of their communities. There are four Community Clusters covering the entire Ballymena Area, two rural (East & West) and two urban (North & South).

Ballymena South Community Cluster consists of four wards, of which a number of Super Output Areas across all of the wards are designated as Neighbourhood Renewal areas. Pre the Cluster programme, three workers were employed under Neighbourhood Renewal, one in Ballee, one in Ballykeel and one in Harryville. Funding ceased for these posts in 2011 and with the Council’s proposal to establish the Cluster model, it was clear that this was an opportune time to form a partnership between Council and the then Department for Social Development, now Department for Communities, to jointly fund a South Cluster staff team.
