He was also very impressed by the value that we place on interagency working and building relationships with other agencies at local, national and European level.

The clients from both the INVEST programme and Ballyrunners were fantastic, as was Annmarie (another BJC Client), and they all spoke about their own experiences of living in Ballymun, how the BJC has supported them and their hopes for the future.
