The Reach Out Project has been successful in applying for funding to mirror the work we do here in the Northwest in Northern Ireland.

Andy McCann has been seconded to the project one day a week to help coordinate the work of Union Learning Reps (ULRs)

A lot of the focus will be on the Health and Social Care sector as we look to recruit ULRs and help members access learning opportunities as we have done and continue to do here.

A learning hub will be established in the GMB Hollywood Office.

We know that Officers and ULRs in Northern Ireland are keen to replicate the successes achieved in other areas of the Region.

The funding was awarded through the ICTU on the back of the efforts of ULRs, Officers and Project Workers here in the Northwest, so a big thank you for your sustained support.

For more information regarding the work of the project in Northern Ireland please give Andy a call on 07715 043640 or e-mail 

Alternatively contact the Hollywood Office on 02890 393340 or at Victoria House, 1a Victoria Road, Holywood, Northern Ireland, BT18 9BA
