”Get IT, Get Fit!”

Posted 04:18PM on Thursday 27 November 2014

Young people in Fermanagh supported by our Lakeland Family Support Service have been getting to grips with new iPads recently purchased by the Service with monies received from The Openwork Foundation “Cares for Kids” Grant. The monies will fund our “Get IT, Get Fit!” Project which aims to promote independence and physical and mental health for young people aged 8–18 years old who have limited opportunities for social interaction and physical activity.

The iPads are proving to be a big hit and are already helping our young people express themselves. The Service has also been able to purchase a Tac Pac music and touch communication toolkit which will soon be introduced to the young people. We would like to thank The Openwork Foundation for funding this very exciting project, not only in Fermanagh but across our Family Support Services in Bangor and Lisburn.
