He said, “MARA aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in rural Northern Ireland by helping them access local services, grants and benefits. This has been a vital service for thousands.

“MARA has secured over £1m of reclaimed benefits, 1500 homes receiving Warm Home Insulation Grants and 780 people joining Rural Community Transport schemes.”
