The £15m Space and Place project, managed by the Community Foundation comes to an end this month as its 30th project, Destined in Derry~Londonderry opens. The National Lottery Community Fund Programme supported 30 projects to make better use of new and existing outdoor and indoor unused spaces in local communities across Northern Ireland, helping them to come together to identify a shared vision for their area and work together to deliver it.

Destined, as with all the projects supported through the Space and Place Programme has been made possible by National Lottery players and the new Learning Disability Centre in Derry~Londonderry received  £1,300,000. Developing the skills, confidence and the social inclusion of people with a learning disability has been given a massive boost with the opening of the new purpose built centre located on the banks of the river Foyle.
