Overwhelmingly Positive Experience

WOMEN’STEC is the largest quality provider of training for women in non-traditional skills in Northern Ireland. The organisation supports women into industries where females are underrepresented and uses hands on trade skills as a framework for participants’ personal development.

A Lifeline during the pandemic

Cloughfin Community Association works for the benefit of local people and provides activities for all ages of people. Activities include dancing classes, crafts and historical projects as well as the promotion of health. The community building - an old primary school - is the only meeting place in this isolated rural area.

It takes a village…

Having had the opportunity to pilot a BCPP Level 1 health literacy project previously, the organisation partnered with Stephanie Haughey of McCartan’s Pharmacy to apply for a Level 2 grant.

Making Positive Health Choices

FutureProof offers support, advice and education on a wide range of health and social issues for young people aged 11-25 across the Banbridge and Craigavon area. The daily drop-in service ensures that young people always have somewhere to go for support and health advice.

Taking Collective Action

Valley Rangers Football Club operating within the rural Kilkeel area of the Mournes creates an opportunity for their members (aged five to adults) to be supported on their football journey. The Club is in a unique position to engage with males about their health and wellbeing on a regular basis.

Health Awareness Promotes Inclusion (HAPI) Programme

Women’s Centre Derry aims to combat poverty and promote prosperity in disadvantaged communities through empowerment and education. The Centre provides a safe, secure and enabling environment for women and supports them to achieve their full potential.

The Community Pharmacy - an invaluable service

Richmount Rural Community Association is based in Co Armagh and is strongly committed to targeting health inequalities. This large rural area has a substantial number of people in the over 60 age group and the Association encourages people to take responsibility for their own health through various initiatives.

It's Time for the Girls

Oasis Caring in Action is a community based charity working within East Belfast and Antrim. It aims to ‘Transform Lives, Transform Communities’ through the provision of childcare, befriending services and community courses. The charity has a desire to see the people in those areas empowered through support, training and resources.

The Pharmacy - an integral part of healthcare provision

Fermanagh Sports & Cultural Awareness Association offers training and opportunities such as health projects and peace building activities and is based in Ballinamallard, an area of rural deprivation and isolation.

Empowering our young people
