Sinn Féin MLA and Junior Minister Jennifer McCann announces £3.29 million investment for West Belfast,
Speaking at the Springvale campus Ms. McCann said,
"This investment in the West Belfast Works Project will support 200 long term unemployed people from West Belfast by giving them 51 weeks paid employment with local employers.
“The project was developed by the local community and will be delivered by the West Belfast Partnership Board and the Upper Springfield Development Trust.
“It will give people who have been out of work for a time the ability to get back into employment and will have a positive effect on their potential for future employment opportunities.
“Programmes such as this will improve the life chances of people in the area, not only benefiting the individual participants but also their families and the wider community."
