Sinn Féin Foyle MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed the news that a pilot crisis intervention service in the City has been given the go ahead.
The Foyle MP said “It’s great news that the pilot crisis intervention service has become a reality.
“This has come about due to a lot of hard work over the last couple of years. I have been very passionate about making this happen along with other people who have all collectively ensured that this did not drop off the radar.
“The next stage will be working with the group who have been awarded the contract to undertake this work to help the most vulnerable in our society.
Concluding she said
“I believe that there is huge goodwill in the community towards tackling these issues as each of us are touched by them, be that through personal experience or a relative, friend or neighbour. It is essential that we all do everything in our power to support those affected by these issues.”
