Well 2 Launch
Tuesday 07 December 2010
The Cedar Foundation is involved in an innovative project to help improve the lives of people with disabilities and mental health issues across the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust area.
The WELL 2 (Well-being, Education, Living and Learning) project was officially launched with funding of nearly £1 million from the Big Lottery Fund’s Live and Learn programme. The project is increasing training opportunities and improving the health and well-being of people with physical and learning disabilities, and mental health issues in the Ards, Down, North Down and Lisburn areas.
Well 2, which is working in partnership with Action Mental Health, The Cedar Foundation and Autism NI, is helping people get involved in a range of activities and training courses to achieve qualifications, gain independence, increase self confidence, volunteer, find work, and lead more fulfilled lives.
Well 2 was launched by Colm McKenna, Chairman South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust, at Lisburn’s South Eastern Regional College. At the event Project Co-ordinator, Caroline Digney explained that the project is aimed at supporting those people who are not taking part in any community activities, education or training because they don’t have the confidence, support or information readily available to do so.
