Cedarís 75th Celebrations Begin
Tuesday 02 February 2016
The Cedar Foundation launched their new Regional Resource Centre on January 27, at Ravenhill Reach, Belfast. The event is the first celebration marking their 75 years supporting people with disabilities.
The launch was an opportunity to showcase the range of Community Services that Cedar provides. Those designed to support disabled children, young people and their families to be more involved in their communities, through transitional support, respite and youth programmes. Alongside, those that support adults with disabilities to increase their social and community networking opportunities in the local community as an alternative to traditional day support.
Simon Hamilton, Minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety, who attended the launch said ““Today I have seen at first hand the good work that the Cedar Foundation does and how this work contributes to improving the lives of people with disabilities. I have met children, young people and their carers who have told me about the invaluable help and support they have received from Ravenhill Reach and the Cedar Foundation. I also met members of the Cedar User Forum who work in partnership with HSC Trusts and it is clear how important this forum is to ensure that people with disabilities have a voice”.
Peter Gay, Cedar Chairman said “On behalf of all at Cedar I would like to thank the Minister for opening Ravenhill Reach Resource Centre today and in doing so initiating a year of events to celebrate our 75th Anniversary. The new Centre will act as a regional resource to support Children and Adults with disabilities across NI. It is statement of our commitment to deliver innovative services built on collaboration and partnership.”
Cedar looks forward to continuing their celebrations with a number of planned recognition events to highlight the achievements of their service users, staff and volunteers throughout the year.
