Our leading east Belfast residential care home has been officially recognised as Northern Ireland’s first ‘Music & Memory’ certified home for new methods in dementia therapy
Kirk House, a flagship residential project of BCM (Belfast Central Mission), introduced Music & Memory to its calendar of activity last year to positively impact on the quality of life of its residents, particularly those living with dementia.
Belfast Central Mission’s Housing Support for Young People project is spearheading a cutting-edge new initiative as part of the EU’s Peace IV Programme in conjunction with Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Council.
In collaboration with the BEAM Creative Network, the ‘Opportunities to Engage’ programme will provide training and skills development for a mixed group of 16-25 year olds and those 60+ from across the ABC area.
Since BCM was founded in 1889 the Christmas programme has continued to be a significant event each year. In spite of the passing of time the programme is still very much needed with people depending on food and toy donations to ease the financial pressures that exist at this time of the year.
