Mid Ulster District Council recently held a reception at the Burnavon, Cookstown to mark the 21st Anniversary of Positive Futures.
Positive Futures have many branches across Northern Ireland, including Magherafelt and Cookstown. The purpose of this charity is to transform the future of people with a learning disability, acquired brain injury or autistic spectrum condition, in turn empowering people to live the life they want.
In attendance at the event were volunteers and staff as well as people who benefit from the work of Positive Futures. The Deputy Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Sharon McAleer marked the occasion by cutting a cake with Chief Executive, Agnes Lunny and Frances Mayes who has been assisted by the charity,
Councillor Sharon McAleer commented, “For many people living with a learning disability, acquired brain injury or autistic spectrum condition, and their families, Positive Futures are a lifeline. By offering support, organising trips away, or a break from full-time caring, Positive Futures can make a huge difference to the lives of those affected. I would like to thank everyone involved, staff and volunteers for their hard work and congratulate you all on a successful 21 years.”
