SOFT (Supporting our Families Together)


The SOFT Project (Supporting Our Families Together), is a five-year school and community-based, family support programme. It is 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 primary, post-primary and nursery schools from Cookstown and the surrounding area. It includes all sectors:– Controlled; Maintained; Integrated and Irish Medium.
We’ve built a network of support, for children and their families, working in partnership with organisations from across the community and statutory sectors. The scale of the project and the strength of the network, helps us deliver the best possible service tailored to the needs of each child and family.
