Funded by LCDC and Healthy Ireland, Sligo Family Resource Centre and the Intercultural Project were excited to launch the first of our ‘Healthy living across all our communities’ workshops beginning March 6th this year.
Healthy living across all our communities
Partnering up with Sligo Garda Síochána, the Sligo Rape Crisis Centre (SRCC); the Domestic Violence Advocacy Service and Amal Women’s Association, a Dublin based support group for Muslim women, this was a welcome and timely event emphasising on Women, Safety and Mental Health to migrant women living in Sligo.
This event which gathered over 100 women with origin in over 20 different countries was to be the first of 4 other events on health topics such as mental health and belonging, nutrition and healthy living, women’s and men’s health, outdoor physical and mental health etc.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions however we have had to revise the format of these bigger events to instead be organised as recurring smaller workshops over a longer time period of 12 weeks. We are hopeful that we can initiate these smaller workshops to take place between January and May 2021.
In addition to these workshops we have also initiated a Women’s Walk and Talk conversational English group that when restrictions allow will take place in Doorly Park, Sligo every Friday at 10 am.
