Given these strange times we realise that families may be experiencing some difficulties across a range of areas. During the Covid 19 Pandemic we have continued to support families living in North Belfast in a creative and safe way through telephone calls and emails, offering practical supports, stress awareness, behaviour support and a range of employability skills to help enhance learning and ensure people are ready and prepared for entering the employment market. The project continues to be innovative and engage with families in a way that works for them.

Alongside our citywide partners we can offer training to individuals to allow people to keep learning and developing. This includes improving existing skills and promoting well-being, managing personal finances and social media skills. So if you or someone in your family is aged 16-64 and not in education, training or employment and would like to join our family centred programme please contact: kris.morrison@ashtoncentre.com, eileen.oprey@ashtoncentre.com, caroline.mcilwee@ashtoncentre.com, clare.anderson@ashtoncentre.com or call 07926534966 For further information on the Community Family Support Programme, please visit: https://www.ashtoncentre.com/services/community-family-support-programme/
