Mid Ulster District Council - Dungannon
NICVA has been working with the 11 councils to connect all the work related to the COVID 19 crisis that is going on throughout Northern Ireland.
We have designated a staff member to each council as a liaison to communicate directly with council staff. These staff members have also been working with local organisations to update the CommunityNI website with COVID 19 services and support. We want to work with the councils to highlight what they are doing and provide any support and added value that we can.
The aim of The Niamh Louise Foundation is to provide a safe environment where anyone can drop in to chat about worrying thoughts, thoughts of suicide and/or self-harm. The charity is well known for its provision of care and understanding.
Joe Coney, Chairperson of the Mid-Ulster Association of Counselling and Psycotherapy (MACP) tells us about the ongoing and changing work the counsellors have embraced over the last few months to help vulnerable people in the area.
Today's chat with Maura Brooks from Derrytresk Community and Chair of the Youth and Community Group highlights some of the important voluntary work going on in the Community supporting people's mental and physical well-being.
I was delighted to catch a few minutes with Barry Monteith to have a chat about the amazing efforts of people in the Dungannon area who are rallying around supporting and encouraging their friends and neighbours.
