Action Mental Health (AMH) has re-launched its Promote service in Bangor, following a change in focus for the organisation.
AMH Promote, which is funded by the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT), will focus on providing opportunities for adults with a learning disability to be socially active and develop new skills in a supportive and engaging environment. Following the review of service provision and the introduction of new service providers in the area, AMH Promote has been commissioned to deliver a day opportunities service, which will focus on the personal development of clients.
During the launch event AMH Promote celebrated the achievements of their clients with a certificate presentation ceremony. Colm McKenna, Chairman, SEHSCT presented 40 clients with a range of ASDAN and OCN NI certificates covering topics such as Self Advocacy, Meal Preparation, Independent Living skills, Sports Studies, Personal & Social Development (PSD), computer skills, digital photography, baking skills, horticulture, communication skills, and crafts.
Karen Hillis, Service Manager, AMH Promote said,
“Our vision is to provide a service where we can offer a range of client focused training and social activities to develop individual’s skills and self-confidence as well as encourage engagement with our local community.”
Congratulating everyone who received a certificate at the event, Karen said
“We are delighted to have supported so many of our clients to successfully complete such a broad range of qualifications and to see the pride they take in their well-earned achievements.”
Ellen Savage, whose daughter attends AMH Promote said,
“Since starting at AMH Promote, my daughter has grown into a confident and sociable young lady having made many new friends and has gained more independence that I ever thought would be possible. Staff are always there to offer support and reassurance to both myself and my daughter which is invaluable – I would highly recommend AMH Promote to everyone.”
