Thank you letter to Fermanagh District Council

Thankyou letter to Robert Gibson Fermanagh District Counci

Dear Mr Gibson,

I am writing to thank you and Fermanagh District Council for your generosity toward the Right Here Fermanagh Project. The Young Mothers and myself are very appreciative of your kindness in providing facilities within the Lakeland Forum for our sessions.

As you are aware, Right Here Fermanagh promotes the positive mental health of young women and men ages 16 – 25 in the Fermanagh area. The project challenges the stigma associated with mental illness, promotes new and innovative ways of improving the mental health of young people at risk of mental ill-health and influences policy to improve existing mental health services for young people.

The young Mothers group have gained much knowledge along with the accomplishment of new skills. They have covered many different topics of interest such as Mental Health, Healthy Eating, Healthy Lifestyle, Coping With Stress, Self Esteem and Confidence Building, Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Sexual Health, Gender, Minding your Head and Money Management. At present the Young Mothers are completing a Fitted and Tailored Project that will see their creative ideas of how it feels to be a young woman living in Northern Ireland displayed in a museum in Belfast for International Young Women’s Day on March 8th.

I feel that they young mothers group has been a great success in promoting not only positive mental health for these young women but also promoting what it is to be a young woman and to allow their voices to be heard and their feelings expressed.

The group were very keen to thank you for your generosity.

Sinead thanks you by saying, ‘We love it to bits and we don’t want it to end. We are so grateful to you.

Claire thanks you by saying, ‘If you hadn’t have given us somewhere for the group we would have nothing to do. Thank you

Carmel thanks you by saying, ‘We have made such good, lifelong friends and had fun along the way. I don’t know what I will do without the group. Thanks so much for your kindness and support.

Lastly, as the Young Mothers Group is coming to an end, I would like to thank you very much again for the generosity, kindness and support which you have given the Right Here Young Mothers Programme and also commend the staff of the Lakeland forum for their continued patience and warm welcome.

I hope that perhaps you will be able to view some of the group’s magnificent creative work for International Young Women’s Day on March 8th i
