Jim Wells Health Minister for Northern Ireland visit to The Lisburn Assessment & Resource Centre

Today we were invited to cover the visit of Jim Wells, the Health Minister for Northern Ireland to the Lisburn Assesment & Resource Centre by the Carers Forum on Learning Disability.

It was a humbling experience for us to visit with the inspiring people that make use of the L.A.R.C I am sure that Mr. Wells and the Northern Ireland M.L.A's and the local Councillors that attended felt the same way.
