Social Development Minister, Mervyn Storey MLA, has visited Magherafelt to officially open the newly refurbished InVolve House, and launch the innovative ‘Carefully Yours’ project.
InVolve House was once home to a 1930s cinema but this landmark building in Magherafelt has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and is now the new home of the Cookstown and Magherafelt Volunteer Centre.
The ‘Carefully Yours’ project is being funded through the Northern Ireland Executive’s £30million Change Fund, administered by the Department of Finance and Personnel. DSD submitted an application to the Change Fund seeking £100,000 to deliver the project between April 2015 and March 2016.
The initiative is a partnership between DSD, the Northern Health and Social Care Trust and Cookstown and Magherafelt Volunteer Centre.
