Extern, the leading social justice charity in Ireland, today, 3 August 2016, welcomed Minister for Communities, Paul Givan, MLA, to its Belfast Ormeau Centre for people who are homeless. Like the Charity, the Ormeau Centre, has been in operation since 1978, and currently provides over 11,000 bed nights annually, and support services to people who are homeless.

Extern's Cavan Traveller Primary Health Care programme hosted a 3 day First Aid training programme and are delighted to have the youngest Traveller ever in Cavan to receive a FETAC Level 5 certificate in Occupational First Aid.

Congratulations to Kimberley Mongan, 15 who successfully qualified as a First Aider by obtaining a FETAC Level 5 in Occupational First Aid during the week. Kimberley has been a carer for the past number of years and having this training and qualification is a great benefit in helping build Kimberley's confidence, skills and knowledge.

The families of the SAFE project were cordially invited to the Lord Mayors parlour on a meet and greet and buffet invitation. The current Lord Mayor Alderman Brian Kingston has been a longstanding friend and advocate of the work of the SAFE Project at Extern. Lord Mayor Kingston ran the Belfast City Marathon and donated £250 to support the work of the group, which reaches across the greater Shankill community to support families after suicide.
