We've been working with community members in Kilcoole to explore setting up a new mental health support group in the town. The group would offer a safe and confidential space to talk with guidance and support.
Our Healthy Ireland initiative is providing workshops in local schools where children and parents can have fun while learning about nutrition, delicious healthy cooking and physical exercise. Find out more HERE.
At our February 2019 BAP Disability Network meeting, members got to meet up, share information and chat about ways to work together more collaboratively.
The group also agreed some actions for the coming year:
Our colleagues in SPECS Bray are offering a free Parents Plus Early Years parenting programme for parents of children aged 0-6 years in Bray, starting on 16th January 2019.
Our Fáilte Isteach conversational English classes are starting up again at the end of January - in Bray and Kilcoole.
Bray Area Partnership (BAP) is seeking applications for the position of SPECS Initiative Transitions Development Worker (part-time 20 hours a week).
Our Disability Network has been providing a series of Disability Awareness Workshops for TY and LC students in local post-primary schools - the latest in St. Kilian's Community School, Bray, in November 2018.
Minister for Health Simon Harris TD has launched an evaluation report on our SPECS Bray project, which found that the work of this prevention and early intervention initiative has resulted in significant positive outcomes for local parents and children.
