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.
BCM’s Christmas Support Programme also gives hope and emotional support to those who struggle as they know there is somebody who cares.
Families, residents and visitors to the Ards Peninsula will be in for a treat this August with the inaugural Copelands Summer Fete taking place in Donaghadee on the Bank Holiday Saturday, 24th August.
One of Northern Ireland’s oldest charities, Belfast Central Mission (BCM), is building ‘Copelands: Dementia, Nursing and Residential Care’ outside Millisle, which will provide practice-leading care for up to 60 residents and is due to open early 2020.
Parents’ Support project celebrated 20 years of community care with a bumper day of family fun, food and friendship.
Initially conceived as a pilot project in 1999, the Parents’ Support project continues to help young mums and dads who have previously come from the care system, with the intention of breaking the cycle and providing opportunity and hope for the families involved.
