On 9 October 2015, we were invited by the Lord Mayor of Belfast Arder Carson to attend an event at Belfast City Hall to receive a Certificate of Recognition in association with Divis Community Centre. We are so pleased to have been acknowledged for all of our work and dedication to our local community and overwhelmed to be referred to as a ‘true Community Champion’.
We develop a range of physical activity programmes for our services users from boccia to swimming. Our activities are for groups of individuals that have a range of disabilities, including mobility problems, brain injury, sensory impairments and multiple sclerosis.
It is always great to see our service users enjoying our activities and give them the opportunity to improve their self-esteem, mobility, confidence and health, as well as building friendships along the way!
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that supports us at Jigsaw NI and to the organisers of this certificate!
