Challenging times

The last 18 months have been a challenging time for us all and we cannot underestimate the impact Covid-19 has had on the well-being of our community but there are hopes of better days to come.  We have all adapted to a new way of connecting and engaging and for the last 18 months we have delivered lots of courses and support on-line, via telephone and social media platforms but we are now delighted to be able to re open the centre and start our face to face delivery.

We look forward to welcoming you all back but of course there are restrictions which are in place to ensure safety for you and our staff. Please be aware that booking is essential for all our courses along with complying with COVID safety guidelines, track and trace etc and our staff as always are on hand to help and support you in making this process as easy to use as possible.

We have responded to the growing need in our community for additional mental health and well being supports and have been able to provide therapies and other initiatives due to the kindness and generosity generated from local fund-raising events. We are extremely grateful for this support.

Micheál Mowen, Manager.
