East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has commended the excellent photography skills of students from local skills during the ‘Belfast Exposed’ exhibition launch at the Northern Ireland Assembly last week.

Mr Dickson said: “Belfast Exposed was founded in 1983 by a group of amateur photographers documenting the social and political landscape of Northern Ireland.  Of course in 1983 Belfast and Northern Ireland were very different places, and happily I think we can all agree we are in a much better social and political position today, despite the problems we continue to face.

“This main focus trails the story our electricity from the power station to the light switch, looking in depth at the power station, how electricity is generated, and indeed how we use it - something we often take for granted and rarely think about.

"I am incredibly impressed with the photographs we saw at the exhibition, and would like to thank Belfast Exposed, all the East Antrim secondary schools that participated, and especially AES owners of Kilroot and Ballylumford Power Station for sponsoring the event and making this possible."

Alliance East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has pledged his support for the Social Enterprise Sector and has also got behind its #SocialValueWeek, and the need to prioritise the further growth of the sector as a key feature of the new Programme for Government.


Mr Dickson, who is the Chair of the NI Assembly Social Enterprise All Party Group, said:  “Social Enterprise NI is the representative body for social enterprises across Northern Ireland and I was delighted to support its launch of the #SocialValueWeek, which focuses on five days of actions aimed at providing a focal point for individuals, businesses, social enterprises and government to join forces and ‘think social’.

“Social Value happens when people or organisations that make purchases or commission public services, consider securing additional economic, social or environmental benefits for their local area.   And it’s. Social enterprises across the province are already pushing the social value agenda.

Speaking at the launch of the Social Enterprise NI Manifesto at Stormont, Chris Gordon, Director of Social Enterprise NI, said:  “Social enterprise is gathering momentum here in Northern Ireland.  We are calling on Government to play its part, through co-design and testing new approaches to public service delivery, and by truly commissioning for greatest social value. A Social Value Act should be considered as an important vehicle to unlock social enterprise’s potential”.

Mr Dickson MLA concluded:  “I pledge my full support to #SocialValueWeek, and Social Enterprise NI’s Manifesto, in calling on the Executive, and those responsible for procuring public services, to commission for ‘maximum social value’.  This should be a key feature in the next Programme for Government.”

East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has welcomed the announcement that almost 200 jobs are to be created at by companies operating at the International Airport at Aldergrove.  These jobs will be in aviation security, retail, airport operations and aircraft and passenger handling services.

Mr Dickson said: “East and South Antrim are very well placed to benefit from the economic boost that the airport will provide.  Next Monday (8th February), the airport will be holding a three hour jobs fair at the Templeton Hotel, seeking to fill these 200 positions.  I would urge those interested to attend to explore the employment opportunities on offer.”
