Ana Liffey Drug Project is pleased to announce that the Ana Liffey's Open Door Project Mullingar has returned to a full Monday to Friday service as of today.
Director of the Ana Liffey Drug Project, Tony Duffin, said:
“The Ana Liffey took over the day-to-day running of the Open Door Project from Westmeath Community Development Ltd on 13th October 2011and we are committed to the continuing development of our professional drug service for Mullingar. One of the most basic standards we aspire to is being open regularly throughout the week. Unfortunately, due to funding difficulties the service had to be reduced to a three day week in April 2011. Through donations and fundraising efforts we have managed to meet the funding shortfall for 2012 for our Mullingar service. We will maintain a high standard of service and we look forward to continuing our work with the local community, local NGO services and the local statutory agencies. We are very grateful for the ongoing support of the Midlands Regional Drugs Task Force, Westmeath County Council, the HSE, Westmeath Community Development Ltd and all those who support the work of this much needed service.”
