LORAG (Lower Ormeau Resident’s Action Group) is a ‘needs led’, community development organisation, founded in 1987 to support the residents and community of the Lower Ormeau area of South Belfast. LORAG is committed to supporting and assisting the diverse community from ‘the cradle to the grave’ in a multitude of areas from personal development, family support, employment and training support, community cohesion and innovative health initiatives.
Open dialogue, while a feature of the relationship between community workers in inner south Belfast, has been conducted, generally, on an ad hoc basis due to other pressing demands on time and resources ? ergo the necessity of employing an inter-community worker dedicated to, and concentrating upon, overcoming real or imagined divisions and the promotion of reconciliation between the two traditions and advancing social and economic progress in accord with the shared future agenda. The employment of an Inter-Community Development Worker will ensure that the ?shared space objective? remains prime; it is properly co-ordinated; that clear and direct communication is at all times maintained between all interested parties; that the partners in the inter-community tri-partite group have full input; that the constituent communities are fully consulted and their needs are fully reflected in access to resources at the shared space location. The day-to-day operational management of the ?Inter-Community Development Worker? will fall under the purview of the Donegall Pass Community Forum (DPCF) Development Manager who will be responsible for ensuring that the policies and directions of the, recently formalised, Cromac Regeneration Initiative Board are executed in accordance with the aims and objectives of the project. The DPCF Development Manager will report, and be accountable, to the Cromac Regeneration Initiative Board - the community representative members of which will report to their respective Management Committees (viz. , Donegall Pass Community Forum, Lower Ormeau Residents? Action Group.
As well as the general opposition of the community to the parades, claims were also made that members of the Lodge had demonstrated triumphalism over the murder of five men in Sean Graham's bookmakers by the UDA. [21] In 1996, the dispute spilled over into conflict between the Lower Ormeau Residents' Action Group.
In an effort to encourage a sense of pride in the area among local children, the Housing Association has invited young people living at Lavinia and in the surrounding area to get involved in planting trees at the development. Peter Kane, Clanmil Housing?s Maintenance Manager explained what the planting session is hoped to achieve; ?We?ve asked local kids to help plant the landscaping as we feel that involving them in creating their own environment will encourage them to look after it and to make sure that their friends do too. Lavinia is a great development and we want it to remain an area where our tenants are proud to live, but we need their help to do that. Developing a sense of ownership through events like today?s will, we hope, mean that everyone will do their bit to keep Lavinia looking its best. ?I?d like to thank the kids who?ve worked really hard today and also the Lower Ormeau Residents Action Group.
