Belfast Hills Partnership Urban Green Spaces

Belfast Hills Partnership

The Belfast Hills Partnership (BHP) is an independent charity which seeks to improve how the hills are managed. The hills include a number of urban and peri-urban sites within Belfast, Lisburn, Antrim and Newtownabbey Council Areas.  This work is done in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders including local councils, government departments, community groups, nature conservation organisations and businesses committed to caring for the Belfast Hills and their people.



Wild Youth Programme

Belfast Hills Partnership and Ulster Wildlife have joined forces to deliver an exciting new Youth Programme called Wild Youth, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. This project delivers wild wellbeing sessions with 11-25 year olds, in and around the Belfast Hills, using nature as a tool to connect with young people and increase their physical and mental health, incorporating the 5 steps to wellbeing.


Volunteer Programme

The Belfast Hills Partnership has a weekly volunteering programme, where members of the public join staff at various urban green space sites to undertake practical improvements such as litter picks, tree planting, path maintenance etc.
