What is the SOFT Project?
The SOFT Project (Supporting Our Families Together) is a five-year school and community family programme funded by the Big Lottery’s Reaching Out Supporting Families fund. The Speedwell Trust is the lead partner.
SOFT brings children and young people together. The project works with 14 primary schools, 2 post primary schools and nursery school from all sectors across Cookstown and the surrounding area – Controlled, Maintained, Integrated and Irish Medium. We widen the network of support for children, young people and their families by co-operating with 13 additional organisations across the community and statutory sectors. The size and scope of the project helps us find and deliver the best possible service.
