Footprints Women's Centre's 50 plus group were delighted to receive Heritage Lottery Funding to carry out a research project into the history and heritage of their local area in West Belfast. The project 'Through our Eyes' enabled the 50 plus group to explore the traditional industries and businesses of the area - charting the decline of these and how the area has developed over the years to what it is today.
Footprints Women's Centre was delighted to take part in the first ever Belfast Strategic Partnership's Festival of Learning and on Friday 11th March we celebrated the achievements of all the women learners who had enrolled on programmes from January 2016. Our guest speaker was Counsellor Nicola Mallon who congratulated the women for taking the time in their busy lives to become involved with training and staying engaged with lifelong learning.
