The Workspace Group donate £100,000 to Mid Ulster Groups

3rd April 2019

The Workspace Group is celebrating a major milestone in its support of local community and voluntary groups in the Magherafelt area of Mid Ulster. The ‘profit for purpose’ organisation has now exceeded the £100,000 mark in the value of grants distributed from its surpluses through the Fund which was established in 2009. Since then groups including Glasgowbury, Ballinascreen Men’s Shed, Draperstown Traders and Ballinascreen Eco Schools, have used Workspace grants to deliver a total of 278 projects to the benefit the local community.

The Workspace business model sees surpluses generated from its commercial activities: including recruitment; training and employability; heat recovery; self employment support; and insulation being used to benefit the local community through a range of initiatives such as the Workspace Community Fund.

Laurence O’Kane, The Workspace Group, advises "This is a tremendous milestone for us. Through the Workspace Community Fund we are enabling other community organisations in the area to have a positive impact on our community. We are committed to seeing our community flourish and are willing to do whatever is needed to make that happen.”

Since it was set up in 1985 to stimulate economic regeneration in the Draperstown area Workspace has invested almost two and a half million pounds directly into the area including the construction of industrial and office units for local businesses, social housing units and a state of the art recreation centre as well as the refurbishment of a number of derelict properties in the town. They provide local services such as after school facilities for school children and free space for community groups as well as distributing carbon monoxide detectors for the elderly and take responsibility for installing the Christmas lighting in the town centre.

Workspace remains an integral part of Draperstown working with the community to ensure that local needs are met and its continued investment helps ensure that the area is thriving.
