We were in Ballymena recently for the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland Healthy Connections and Conversations event, which was all about the power of the community.

Maureen Collins, our Project Manager, who has been involved in grassroots community work for the past 27 years, was honoured to be chosen to speak on the day.

She was part of a panel on Flexible Funding to Support Community Health and Wellbeing Outcomes.
Jacquie Loughrey our Education and Prevention Officer and Sean Harkin our Family Support Officer also went along.

The team was delighted to reconnect with Health Minister Robin Swann who came to visit us on a recent visit to the city and is really interested in community health initiatives.

We also had a great chat with event host Marie Louise Connolly, & BBC NI Health Correspondent.
