A special event was held in the North West recently to recognise the achievements of school age mothers (SAMs).

Presentations, organised at the Western Education and Library Board, were held at the Women’s Centre in the city and recognised younger mothers from all over the Derry area.

The aim of the presentation day was to celebrate the successful completion of the SAMs Project, which offers support in education; provides peer support and information about services in the local community and offers practical, emotional and social support to all school age mothers.
