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.
Twenty-one residents of Kirk House joined the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Alderman Brian Kingston for tea on Monday 13th March. They also enjoyed a tour of the City Hall. A great day was had by all. Thank you.
Thank you to all the guests who participated in a celebration of Linking Learning Growing Together project, highly commended in 2016 Awards, which took place on 30 January 2017. We are proud of all OLSPCK students and pupils from Gilnahirk Primary School who worked with the residents of Kirk House. The project enabled all the participants, both young and older, to experience some unforgettable moments, learn new skills, share their stories and learn from one another.
