Health Minister Edwin Poots yesterday visited Aaron House in Dundonald to learn more about the work of the Presbyterian Board of Social Witness (PBSW).
The minister acknowledged the role PBSW plays in supporting people with disabilities to live fuller, more independent lives in the community.
“I am always delighted to come along to see the excellent work being carried out by organisations such as the Presbyterian Board of Social Witness in helping to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people in our society receive the care and support they need,” the DUP minister said.
“Here in Northern Ireland my department has formed a very successful partnership with faith-based groups, amongst others, in developing a mixed economy of care.”
The partnership between different sectors is essential in helping his department achieve one of its main objectives, he added.
