Cedar Celebrates Service Users with Award Ceremony

Monday 12 September 2016

Pic.To mark the success of our first year of Inclusion Works in the Western area, Training Officers in Foyle recently held a Celebration of Achievement Awards Day for participants.  Inclusion Works Regional Head of Service, Elaine Armstrong was invited to present certificates in OCR Employability Skills and Life and Living Skills ICT to all who had successfully achieved these qualifications over the past twelve months.

During the event Certificates of Special Commendations where also presented to those who had contributed to the Northern Ireland wide Art Exhibition ‘What It Means to Be Me’.  This exhibition gave those living with brain injury a valuable opportunity to express the personal impact of brain injury through the arts. The exhibition was held in May to mark Action for Brain Injury Week 2016 at Cultra Manor. Cedar Inclusion Works Western participants achieved a Special Commendation in the Craft Category for their OCR Life and Living Arts and Crafts piece, “Our Brain Injury in Pictures”.

The event was rounded up with light refreshments which gave both participants and staff an opportunity to catch up on their progress and celebrate.
