New opportunities for young people at Newry programme

The Southern Health and Social Care Trust recently launched a new workshop for young people with disabilities in conjunction with the social enterprise community group called SPACE.

The workshops are based in Newry and are designed to prepare 16-17 year olds for adulthood by developing employment skills, creating connections and networking opportunities.



Speaking to Newry Times, Mark Irwin, Operational Manager for Short Breaks said, “The Good Space is a place for young people to participate in free training, socialise, learn new skills and prepare for the next chapter in their lives.”

“Young people will have the opportunity to sample a range of activities such as up-cycling, designing furniture, product promotion, retail experience and digital marketing while customising their days at The Good Space.



“After a successful open day on 20 April we are extremely excited to start working with the young people that are participating in the programme,” he added.
