SDLP Derry City Councillor John Boyle has welcomed an announcement from the Department for Social Development (DSD) of a funding package for a family centre in Ballymagroarty.
Councillor Boyle said;
“I am pleased to hear that DSD are to provide funding of over £300,000 for the construction of a new Dunluce Family Centre in Ballymagroarty.
“This is a very welcome development and I have no doubt that it will provide for continuing support for families in the Outer West Neighbourhood Renewal Area.
“The work of the Dunluce Family Centre has rightly been recognised as an example of good practice in early intervention and family support services.
“The new facility will help to build upon what is already an important asset to the community.
“I look forward to the beginning of works to refurbish and extend a building in Shaw Court which had previously been used as a children’s play school.”
