A new group dedicated to wiping out paramilitarism in Northern Ireland says it won't be "taken for a ride" by organisations trying to misuse its funding.
Some 50 million pounds of public money has been ringfenced for special programmes over 5 years.
The consortium's leader says he's looking for "ambitious and innovative ideas" to persuade people to turn their backs on criminality.
But Peter Sheridan says it's not going to be a "slush fund" and they'll only engage with those in paramilitary groups who "genuinely want to move on".
The best concepts put forward will be recommended to the Executive Office for approval.
