A social enterprise in Lisburn has opened a new £2.5m indoor adventure centre.

High Rise, which has been developed by Employers For Childcare, includes a climbing arena, soft play area, quiet room and sensory room.

Employers For Childcare received money from the National Lottery Community Fund for the rooms, which are designed to benefit children with additional needs.

Marie Marin, chief executive of the social enterprise, said: "This project has been in development for over three years and we are delighted to welcome our friends and colleagues from over the years to celebrate with us.

"At Employers For Childcare, parents and children are at the heart of everything we do and that extends to High Rise.

"We are passionate about making High Rise somewhere that all families, whatever their needs, can come to enjoy time together."
