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.

We are halfway through the six week level 5 lockdown! Every time we do the right thing, we are protecting ourselves and the people around us. 👍
Please continue to wash your hands, cover your mouth if coughing or sneezing, maintain a safe distance and continue to wear a face covering.

Last week the sports group were learning about local amenities and facilities while developing their teamwork to complete some bush craft skills. What a fantastic experience for the trainees and great to get out and get some exercise and fresh air! Thanks to North West Adventure Tours for their fantastic guidance.
It's the start of a new week and the hairdressing group are busy working on their QQI level 3 Reception and Shampooing Skills module in preparation for their skills demonstration.
