Coffee Connection event a success

Jess Murray2 with Sean McManus at Castlewellan Forest Park 02 May 17People in the Mourne area with an interest in health and social care were invited to a Coffee Connection event in the Life Adventure Centre at Castlewellan Forest Park recently.

The café-style session was hosted by the Patient and Client Council – an organisation that has a key role in helping people to have their say about Northern Ireland’s health and social care services.


It offered a more informal opportunity for people to meet others in the Patient and Client Council Membership Scheme living in the same area and to update them on work currently being carried out.

Go For It March 2017Membership Scheme Coordinator, Matthew Weatherall, said, “The Coffee Connection event was also about us getting to know people in our Membership Scheme and forging stronger ties with them.


“Those that attended were given updates on some of our projects, such as recurrent miscarriage and the mental health home treatment crisis response service.”

“We also discussed the project chosen by our members at the Working Together event which, this year, is psychological therapies.


Matthew added, “We’re now following this up by asking if any of our members have experience of these therapies and whether they would like to contribute to our work.”

The Life Adventure Centre was one of 16 Coffee Connection events being held across Northern Ireland throughout April and May.
