Free classes in knitting, pilates, mocktail making, finance, book clubs and more are launching this March.

With Spring in the air and evenings getting a little longer, is it time to try something new? Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC) & the Community Health Sync Project (CoH-Sync) continue to deliver wellbeing supports to the people of Donegal and surrounding counties.

Classes are all delivered online and include sessions in Mocktail Making, Pilates, Zumba, Mindfulness, Cooking, Art & Crafts, Financial wellbeing and Knitting for wellbeing with designer Edel Mac Bride.

Project manager Siobhan Coyle (DLDC) explains:  “We are running online courses to support people to stay connected (socially online), learn a new skill or simply do something that takes our minds away from the Covid pandemic.

“These new programmes are open to people living in Donegal, Derry/Londonderry, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Leitrim who have not previously completed a course with us.  Free materials are available for the first people who register for the knitting and arts and crafts workshops’’.

All of the programmes are free and delivered online via private Facebook Groups or Zoom, for one hour per week. A personalised health action plan & 5 weeks of support from Community Health Facilitators is available with each of the programmes.  The next block of workshops start the week of March 8th.

Staff on the SEUPB funded CoH-Sync project are available to support people with their health & wellbeing. Each programme includes 1-2-1 personalised health plans and regular check-ins over a period of 5 weeks from Community Health Facilitators. These are delivered via phone and online.
