We at All Saints GAC Ballymena engaged Bremar to deliver sessions on Resilience and Suicide Awareness as a key part of our 6-week Health & Well Being programme, Saints and Slimmer’s.

Bremar Training delivered resilience training for Inishowen Development partnership (The CHANCE Project) which is funded by International fund for Ireland. The main emphasis of the training is to work with social isolated young people. To develop their emotional and positive mental health and to improve their communication skills.

As project leader, I noticed the young people flourished throughout Bremar resilience training and their self-esteem and confidence excel. I want to commend Bremar for their adaptability approach to meet the needs of the young people.

I highly recommend Mark and Brendan on their interpersonal skills that made the resilience training truly exceptional.
