Brilliantly Me funding
Triangle Housing are delighted to have been awarded a £198,203 grant from The National Lottery Community Fund (formerly Big Lottery Fund). We are using the funding over three years for staff costs and training for our projects, special educational needs school pupils, and community groups in areas including Ballycastle, Ballymoney and Coleraine.
The project, which is called Brilliantly Me, includes Train the Trainer sessions, sensory storytelling skills and singing using Makaton. The project will form a Makaton choir to perform in community venues. They will also hold a celebration event to recognise the work of everyone involved.
Our Participation & Engagement Manager Leanne McCafferty said: “I’m really excited about our Brilliantly Me project, which is promoting positive well-being for people with learning disabilities. We’ll provide an opportunity for members’ strengths to shine and create a ripple of positivity throughout their communities. We’re helping people to build their confidence, make positive changes in their lives and be their best selves, brilliantly.”
