The Welcome Organisation visits St Dominic's
Year 13 Faith in Action (RE) groups were introduced to the work of the Welcome organisation. They heard of the great services that the Falls Road Welcome centre provides, for example they serve 40,000 hot meals each year. The Welcome Organisation also offers services off site for example crisis accommodation for vulnerable homeless women and a floating support service to support those who have moved out of hostels into permanent accommodation.
Kieran described new initiatives such as 'Street Gems' an up cycling social enterprise used to help fund their services. Pupils were shown ways to help the Welcome Organisation. We would like to thank the Welcome Organisation's speaker Mr Kieran Hughes for coming in to talk to the year group.
