Building a Better Health Service


WellComm - Well Communities Connect

In January, Cork Kerry Community Healthcare Health and Wellbeing Department in conjunction with Cork North Community Work Department, Health Promotion and Improvement and Cork Sports Partnership ran their first ever WELLCOMM- Well Communities Connect event in Cork. This completely free event was run with the aim of encouraging people to connect with their community for their health and wellbeing.

The event started with the Operation Transformation 5k Walk and it was followed by a range of free events which aimed to connect people together for their health and wellbeing.

Some exciting activities took place including; Family Art, Yoga, Mindfulness, Cooking Demos, Baby Massage, Youth Software Programming and there was free tea and coffee and facepainting.

The START campaign was also present on the day. This campaign is a 5 year public health awareness campaign from safefood, the HSE and Healthy Ireland which promotes healthier lifestyles for families with children aged between 6 months and 12 years.
