It is funded by the HSE and provides a space for local people to deal with their own well being through programmes such as the Women's Groups, Older People's Groups, Men's Shed, Breakfast mornings, Yoga, Outreach, and a Drop In, where advice and information on subjects such as Social Welfare and Rights & Entitlements is available.
