Our project will aim to reduce isolation for vulnerable groups, improve health and well-being, integrate marginalised groups into mainstream provision. The area is very deprived with high unemployment and lack of provision. There are high levels of crime and anti social behaviour amongst young people - therefore providng a menu of stimulating activuties, young people will be diverted away from crime and risk of exploitation. Providing health/ well being programmes will tackle health inequalities


By delivering a wide range of activities to reduce isolation which will include, luncheon groups, disability fun days, media/music/arts projects. We will deliver oral history programmes working with Traveller and Gypsy communities as well as the new arrivals to the area . We will develop our existing lrish Language and cultural programmes. This will include Irish dance and gaelic games, which has a strong membership. We would like to develop more projects with disability and vulnerable elderly.
