Sinn Féin has congratulated the Millennium Forum on successfully achieving funding from Derry City & Strabane District Council to adapt their premises for complex needs changing facilities.
Following meetings with families of children with complex needs, Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan and Cllr Patricia Logue met with Council Officials to look at changing facilities within the Council Area.
Karen Mullan said:
“I am delighted that the Millennium Forum has been successfully awarded funding to adapt their premises at Newmarket Street for complex needs changing facilities.
“Locally, we have met with a number of statutory agencies, to stress the need for proper changing facilities in the city centre, similar to the state of the art facilities at Ebrington.
“The installation of facilities at the Millennium Forum will relieve the pressure placed on families of children and adults with the most complex needs and allow easier access to proper facilities when in the city centre.
“I will continue to engage with families, businesses and statutory agencies in the coming months to press the need for more provision for suitable and complex needs changing provision in Derry and the wider Council area.”
