Donkey day out for clients who rallied Covid-19 crisis to get career ready

Clients at Action Mental Health New Horizons Downpatrick

Congratulations to the hard-working clients at AMH New Horizons Downpatrick who haven’t let the past turbulent year of the Covid-19 pandemic get in their way of their personal development and career progress.

Clients who attend the service achieved certificates in a variety of courses on the Working It Out project, which is part-funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for the Economy.

The client certificate presentation took place with the help of a grant from the Asda Foundation-Bringing Communities Together scheme, with the day being made extra special by a visit from some four-footed, furred friends from Kinedale Donkeys, based in Ballynahinch. Delicious refreshments were provided by Cafe2U in Belfast.

Clients achieved a number of ECDL (European Computer Driving License), British Computer Society certificates, plus OCNNI (Open College Network) courses in Personal Development, Employability Skills and Learning Endeavour. Others received NVQ awards in Customer Service Skills.
