Independent Living Skills - County Galway

September 18 2020, 01:06pm


The second day of the project registration took place on Thursday 17 September! 

People interested in participating on training pending throughout the county came together in an event hosted by the Brothers of Charity, to support a safe, social distancing introduction session.

Participants and staff from Brothers of Charity Galway, and Galway Rural Development came together to register for the Independent Living Skills training taking place in Loughrea and Ballinasloe through Galway Roscommon Education Training Board. 

With thanks to Galway Rural Development for delivering a great introduction to their role of support for people with disabilities and their families and carers. A great introduction to all attendees was given on the vast amount of available resources to people that GRD provide! 

 With a lot of time and effort put in by the project partners of GRD, GRETB, Brothers of Charity and Ability West, people were able to attend yesterday in a safe way, and get to meet all involved. With the valued roles of partners, people will be supported to recieve training, information and ongoing advice on Independent Living Skills in County Galway.
