In July 2016, the Government launched a major initiative for Dublin's North East Inner City to oversee the long-term social and economic regeneration of the area.

Some areas where important progress has been made include:

  • The NEIC Work Experience Programme, which is so critical to Transition Year and Fifth Year students in secondary schools in the NEIC. Even in the year of a global pandemic, a highly successful Flash Mentoring Programme was developed for students so that they could move a step closer to realising their ambitions;
  • The City Connects Programme, which aims to build a network of support for primary school students in the NEIC, their families, and the schools that serve them, improving outcomes now and for years to come;
  • The drug and alcohol addiction response team; the homeless case management team; and the residential stabilisation programme which were originally fully funded by the NEIC Initiative have secured mainstream funding from the Department of Health for 2021.

Areas which are cited in the Report for further progress for 2021 include:

  • City Connects as it develops further;
  • PTECH as it becomes more embedded in the participating schools;
  • Community Case Management;
  • The Local Community Safety Partnership pilot;
  • The reopening of Fitzgibbon St Garda Station; and
  • Further progress being made on the development of Rutland St School
