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. 

The project, is the culmination of seven years of planning and includes a reception, training rooms, café, restaurant and fully equipped kitchen. The Centre has as its primary aim to enhance the inclusion of people with a learning disability with the wider community which the live in and breaking down stigma and prejudices that impact on their daily lives and that of their families.  

Last week The Community Foundation staff and trustees joined Destined at their grand opening celebrations, sharing their new centre with the community and celebrating their success.
