‘The Network Shed’ opens in Magherafelt
Our new facility to help unemployed people locally to develop their occupational skills and for their personal development has opened at Rainey Street, Magherafelt.
Based around the concept of the Men’s Shed, the Network Shed is open to both males and females to allow them to gain hands-on skills and experience in a relaxed environment rather than a formal classroom setting. The Shed which has been developed for participants on our employability programmes will be ‘user-led’, in that users will determine what activities and workshops they would like to see available at the Shed.
A wide variety of activities will be available including crafts, basic construction skills and personal development courses. The facility will also be the venue for a series of speakers who will provide information on a range of topics such as alternative therapies, cookery demonstrations and stress management.
Commenting at the official opening of The Network Shed, Laurence O’Kane, Chairman of The Workspace Group said ‘The Network Shed is a very innovative project which can have a real positive benefit for unemployed people in the local area. The response to date from users has been excellent and it is already impacting positively on the user’s employability’.
