Mayor’s reception for Moving On Up students

Thu, September 06, 2018

Students from ‘Moving On Up’ in Limavady have enjoyed a special civic reception.

The event was hosted by the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Brenda Chivers.

The Moving On Up project provides training and development opportunities for young people and adults with a learning disability. The students develop personally and socially by taking part in activities including cookery, photography and gardening.

Welcoming the group to the Mayor’s Parlour in Limavady, the Mayor said: “Moving On Up is an incredibly valuable organisation which does so much to nurture the potential of its students. A lot of disabled adults may feel slightly lost when they leave school and the project ensures the provision of personal development and training opportunities. Alongside this, it offers important support, advice and advocacy to parents, family members and carers. I was delighted to host the group and I want to personally thank everyone involved in the organisation as it is their time and dedication that ensures these young students are empowered to succeed in life.”
