Translink support for Live Life Wellbeing as major rail project concludes

As part of Translink’s ongoing programme of community initiatives in partnership with local organisations in the Lisburn area, connected with the recently concluded Lisburn Area Renewals (LAR) project, support has been given to Live Life Wellbeing Centre, a local charity working with young people with additional needs.

This has included support for refurbishing their building, the Sarah Crothers Hall in the Warren Park area of Lisburn, including the provision of cladding for the site.

The programme of community initiatives have been part of a sustained programme of engagement connected with this major programme of track works in the Lisburn area, which will maintain high quality, safe and sustainable public transport for generations to come.

Helen Halliday, Translink Senior Programme Manager, said: “From the start of this project, we have been proactively engaging with the wider community in Lisburn to explain the importance of these essential works and have very much welcomed support from local people, organisations, and representatives across the community.

‘‘We were delighted to support Live Life Wellbeing Centre in their long-term community development, helping to secure the future of their vital community facility, and we wish them every success for the future.

‘‘Translink looks forward to continuing to support the local charity Sensability, which supports people with learning disabilities, to deliver a programme of musical events throughout the summer, and the community in the Tonagh area of Lisburn, including the local primary school, as they work to provide community and sensory garden projects.  Together, these will help provide a long-lasting, positive legacy associated with the project within the Lisburn community.’’

“With the LAR project having now concluded, we are very grateful for the long-term support and understanding of the local community and their representatives as we delivered this major programme of works to enhance the railway network.’’’
