What is Health and Wellbeing Community Referral?
Community Referral is a free service supporting the health and wellbeing of the community through spending time linking people into local activities in Ballincollig. We will meet with you in the Ballincollig Family Resource Centre and spend time talking to you about what activities interest you, explore hobbies with you and the benefits of participating in them, and will assist and support you in attending these activities, checking in to make sure you are enjoying yourself and that whatever you are linked to is suiting your needs!
Community Referral involves linking a person into community-based activities and supports in the Ballincollig area, such as exercise, art, reading and gardening, computer classes, personal development with a view to employment and many more.
The Community Referral is a new way for an old idea, that people are happier and healthier when they are connected to their community.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is over 18, who wants a change. The programme is for you if you feel that you need some support to mind your mental health and wellbeing or if you feel isolated, stressed, anxious, lonely, or simply enjoy the company of others.
