About the McDonald Centre: 

Based on the Shore Road in Belfast, the McDonald Centre was conceived as a community hub offering local services, second-chance education, sports, recreation and social outlets – all focused on improving the life chances, skills and opportunities for the local community. It describes itself as a fresh start, a new initiative, a centre focused on self-improvement and boosting community confidence. It is a centre that will offer a range of services and opportunities to improve community cohesion and to put people first, to help people achieve their goals in work and in life. It will be aimed firmly at tackling under-achievement and promoting self-improvement.

Its newly appointed Chair is overseeing its reconstitution and recruitment of new board members.
