Project partners work to secure delivery of training during COVID-19!
Project partners of the Independent Living Skills, Community Healthcare West Project have been working throughout the summer in Galway and Mayo to plan safe delivery of training into the autumn.
Training will be delivered to participants who had started just 2 days training before the crisis hit. Our new plan of training delivery has only been made possible with the valued expert role of each partner organisation including Brothers of Charity Ireland- Galway, Ability West, Galway City Partnership, GCP and Galway Roscommon Education Training Board, GRETB, all working together throughout the summer to bring this plan together.
We look forward to having all participants together starting next week. Training will now be delivered accross an extended 8 weeks, to a limit of 2 hours per class, in a safe supported environment, see fliers of information below:
