Derry/Londonderry is a quickly growing city of over 100,000. Widely regarded to be the capital of the Northwest, L'Derry povides an array of culture, entertainment and shopping opportunities.

There is a significant religious/political breakdown in terms of the population spread within the city, with 95% of the population on the west bank of the river being Catholic and 65% on the east bank being Protestant.

The physical divide present in the city can been seen as reflecting the political, cultural and religious divide of its people. It is in the context of this geographic and demographic divide that the Peace and Reconciliation Group (PRG) provides its services, which are availiable to the entire population of the city, irrespective of culture or religion.
