Triax Neighbourhood Management Team

During the Troubles the Bogside and Brandywell areas, together with the adjoining Creggan, Fountain and Bishop Street areas had been ravaged by violence. Emerging from this nightmare the local community began to become active in identifying and seeking to address the challenges it now faced.

The BBI, established in 1996, set out to help address problems facing local residents as they emerged from decades of conflict. For the next ten years the organisation lead the way in assisting individuals and organisations to address the deficit in community infrastructure in the area. This period witnessed the ongoing improvement of community facilities with the provision of new facilities and the upgrading and refurbishment of existing facilities.
