Stephanie makes Solas history
Thursday, 10 November 2016
THERE'S a new face on the block at Solas and The Chronicle was lucky enough to catch up with her last week for a quick chat!
Stephanie Elder is making history at Solas as their first official member of staff after the group received funding from the Big Lottery Fund People & Communities.
The Ballycastle-born woman says she feels right at home in the cosy Ballycastle office where her official title is Development Co-ordinator.
Although Stephanie left the sea-side town for a number of years to study and live in Scotland, her heart was always at home in Ballycastle, and now she's returned to promote wellbeing and try and make life better for service users.
Stephanie said: "In my role I will be responsible for helping to lead Solas into the next stage of development, which is exciting for both myself and the organisation as a whole. "For the first time, we are in a position to run a range of support programmes over the next five years, including popular existing programmes and trailing new courses to appeal to a wider audience.
“The security that arises from knowing our funding is guaranteed for the future, allows us to now promote our organisation widely, opening up Solas the many local people who know nothing about us or how we could help improve their wellbeing."
