CAN (Compass Advocacy Network), who work with young people and adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues, is bringing an exciting new venture to Ballymoney in the form of “The Hub” at CAN Can Bazaar.

Janet Schofield, Director of CAN explains “Having always had a presence on Main Street, we were offered the opportunity of taking on much bigger premises just across the road from our existing shop. In addition to relocating CAN Can Bazaar, we are keen to make sure the community have lots of opportunities to get involved with CAN and we build upon the links we have made with local artists, crafters, and artisan food producers through our annual Causeway Bazaar. CAN runs numerous programmes including day opportunities, training and health awareness workshops for people with learning disabilities and are always looking for ways to connect into the local community.”

“The new space, “The Hub” will incorporate our boutique-style shop selling the best quality pre-loved clothes and unique, up-cycled furniture as well as showcasing the best of local art, craft and artisan food. We have a beautifully refurbished, large function space upstairs which will facilitate classes and functions and will be available for hire for the local community.”
