Last week we were delighted to deliver a large amount of food items to Sligo Social Services office which were collected by staff and trainees in the previous weeks. Today we were delighted to receive a letter from their Chief Executive, Christina McTaggart acknowledging our efforts.
Sligo Social Services work in our community to provide a pre-school, afterschool’s, family support services, counselling for young people and adults, and an open access service. They also provide a meals on wheels service and a befriending service for the elderly in the Sligo area and a number of homeless services including homeless hostels for single adults, and short-term family accommodation.
A special thank you to all the trainees and staff who donated to the cause. Also to the key workers in each of our departments who organised the collection in their areas and to Ronan and Steve who transported the large amount of goods to drop off point.
Well done to all!

BeLong to youth services believe that no one would have to come out if everyone chose to come in. To come in is to show your support, you understand and you accept the LGBTI+ community. Watch this video and visit: www.belongto.org/comein

The centre is full of activity this morning and trainees are showing their support for 'Stand Up Week' by creating a unique #ComeIn Symbol. BelongTo.org have asked young people to download this icon 'IN' and make it your own with a doodle, sketch, pattern, words of wisdom: whatever you like in support of our LGBTI community. The #ComeIn posters will be displayed around the centre throughout the week.
|Some photos above of our sports and computer trainees working on their posters this morning.|
