Community Notes

Friday 24th March 2023

Living Well Programme

We will soon be hosting a “Living Well” programme here at SWWFRC.  This is a free, group management programme for adults 18 years or older with long term or chronic health conditions.  A long term condition is one that can be treated and managed, but usually not cured.  The programme will run for 6 weeks, with one workshop each week lasting approximately 2.5 hours.  For further information or to book a place, please phone 051 389418

Training and Development Special Purpose award.

Formerly known as Train the Trainer, this is a Level 6 Special Purpose award.  This course will give you the confidence and know-how to design, deliver and evaluate any training.  To be an effective trainer, you need a combination of subject knowledge and strong training skills and know-how. You will also need the confidence that comes with practice and an understanding of how good training works. The course will be delivered in-house at South West Wexford Family Resource Centre, Ramsgrange. It runs one day a week for 8 weeks starting in May.  Please call Esther on 051 389418 to register for this course.

We will be running our annual Easter Camp from Monday 3rd until Thursday 6th  April, and again from Tuesday 11th April until Friday 14th April.  The cost will be €17 per day, and the Camp will run from 9.30am until 1.30pm.  Lots of games, crafts and fun to be had, but spaces are limited so please ring 051 389418 to book.
