BCM Kirk House has been taking part in a pilot 'Connecting Care Homes' Project. The residents and young people from local schools and youth clubs were brought together by Linking Generations Northern Ireland, who are now competing for £50,000 of National Lottery Funding to make the project spread across Northern Ireland. The project connects care homes to their local community through bringing local schools and youth groups together with residents of the care home to complete a range of projects and activities, from arts, fashion, music, crafts and reminiscence. You can read more about the project and vote by visiting https://www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk/projects/view/connecting-care-homes. Voting closes at noon on Monday 3rd April.
The photos below present various activities undertaken by the residents and young people.
