We are proud to have won the Eastside Award for Contribution from a Community Project
The Eastside Awards is an exciting initiative aimed at highlighting and celebrating all that is good about East Belfast, whilst showcasing the contributions being made to the economic, social and community development of the area.
Entries were invited from organisations that could demonstrate a contribution to a specific community or across a number of communities in East Belfast in terms of community engagement, provision of services, community impact and the overall development of the sector.
The judges said that East Belfast Community Counselling Centre started from very modest beginnings with a grant of just £4,000 in 2010. Since then, they have developed a comprehensive service to meet the complex needs of local people in relation to mental health. The judges commended the organisation on the clear impact they have achieved in improving the lives of local people.
