Connect People Network http://connectpeoplenetwork.com Homepage of Connect People Network, Ireland Tue, 28 Mar 2017 21:17:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.6 Statement from the Connect People Network http://connectpeoplenetwork.com/?p=515 Tue, 28 Mar 2017 21:17:36 +0000 http://connectpeoplenetwork.com/?p=515 ]]> Inclusion Ireland. Now that those two things which we were set up to do are happening, we had to be really honest about why the CPN existed. We also realised that those of us organising the group had been doing it for a very long time. There weren't enough new people to help the group grow and change. There are also lots of new rules for charities and we think these are very good, but because we are all volunteers it is very hard to find time to do everything we have to do. We are really happy that the Self Advocacy Group is going to continue doing talks and working on the topic of relationships. This group will now be a part of Trinity College. The Social Group will be continuing as an independent group of friends, called Circle of Friends. You can get in contact with Tom if you would like to go to their events. You can email us (cpnireland@gmail.com) to get his number. So we are now going to start winding the CPN down. We have a lot of legal things to do for that to happen which is taking a long time. All of the money in our bank account when we have finished doing this will be donated to the Self Advocacy Group so it can keep going in Trinity. We hope that you can all understand why we have made this decision. It is a little bit sad when things come to an end but we are really happy that groups like Inclusion Ireland and our Self Advocacy Group can keep going. We will have a final meeting of the CPN to say goodbye to it in a few months. You will all have a chance to meet up and talk about the group. We know that there are things about the CPN that people will miss. If you want some help to find other groups we can help with that. We want to thank everyone who has been a part of the CPN for any length of time. You made us into the group we are, and helped us be successful in our goals.

But friendships can be so tricky nowadays- it's hard to know your Snapchat from your Whatsapp! Last month, when Hilda's dancing 'went viral' (for all the wrong reasons) a series of arguments and group chat fall outs occurred, and Hilda had to take a crash course in the best way to handle being a 'girl online'. Join us next month to see if her friendships can survive this Facebook fallout...or will she be 'deleting' some people from her life! Make sure and check out our Facebook page by clicking here for the fastest updates!
