“My name is Liam Doherty and I was referred to AMH New Horizons Foyle as I was experiencing severe memory problems.
When I was referred, I had no idea what to expect, but I have been pleasantly surprised.
Since being here for 1 year, I have learned lots of new IT skills. I completed an introduction to IT and an online qualification and have received a certificate for my efforts. I have also had the opportunity to take part in several other beneficial courses, including stress management and confidence building. Both have helped me immensely, I have learnt how to identify stresses and triggers and acquired new skills to manage these.
I attended the cycling course which was great fun and I enjoyed it very much. I also help out with reception duties where I answer the phone and take messages. This has increased my confidence and I enjoy it. I am taking part in a 6 week guitar playing course which is also fun. I am hoping to start volunteering at Foyle Food Bank soon which I am looking forward to”.
Liam took part in 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.
