Charities enjoy a ‘Big Lunch’ in local park

Supported Employment Solutions (SES) consortium hosted their very own Big Lunch recently at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park,

There were people from each of the partner organisations, treats provided by Loaf Catering, drinks, plenty of smiles and lawn games.

The Eden project provided flower seeds with their Big Lunch Pack and the SES consortium planted these as a group, reflecting the strength of an overall approach to Specialist Employment Support.

The SES Big Lunch event provided an opportunity for participants of the Workable NI Programme to come together and share experiences, as well as the chance for employers to meet and learn more about how supported employment has worked for them.
