SECAD works with new communities directly and through local service providers such as Family Resource Centres to provide information and training to new communities.
Barriers exist for members of new communities, particularly those for whom English is not their first language in integrating into Irish society and accessing the supports available to them and their families to achieve their potential as members of their communities and in the workforce.
Past integration projects have included celebrating cultural diversity through food at local food festivals. A shared love of food enables SECAD to bring together new communities and alongside this promote access to services, employment, training and meaningful participation in their communities.
Healthy Eating and Lifestyle
Events to promote increased awareness around healthy eating and nutrition, improving healthy cooking skills and budgeting and linking this in with physical activity.
In some cases these will link in with existing community events eg. Food Festivals.
Programmes are subject to eligibility and funding and may take place at varying times throughout 2018.
