- working "with and for" local people -
Border Links develops new and exciting opportunities to support social and economic inclusion for people with learning disabilities - enabling them to play a part, gain in confidence and get the most out of life in their own community.
- Michael Whitehead, was one of our first members.
It was in June 2006 that Michael first started at Border Links in Cornhill. He came up with some good ideas for the veggie baskets and enjoyed painting with Billy as well as a trip to York on the train. Michael often entertained the members with his musical ability and played many instruments including the accordion and the organ.
Michael sadly passed away in 2012 but we remember him every year through the Michael Whitehead Achievement award given to a member of Border Links. His sister chooses someone each year who has achieved something in their life that is of major significance to them.
