The West Belfast Partnership Board is a broad based social partnership with community, statutory, political and business members who are dedicated to the regeneration of West Belfast.

The mission of the Partnership is to :

"Involve people who live and work in West Belfast in generating social, economic, physical and cultural development and to ensure West Belfast makes a full contribution to and benefits equitably from, developments in the city as a whole."

The Partnership is committed to improving the lives of those living in the west of the city and to getting a better deal for West Belfast, its people and places.

West Belfast Partnership implements a number of key strategic and operational functions.
