We know Craigshill and the surrounding area has lots to offer, but that it can be hard to find out what’s going on right on our door step. For our Health and Wellbeing Day we’ve invited community associations, local services and informal groups all together in one place to share what they do.
Whether you’re looking for advice or support linked to improving your mental health; specific information on where you or someone you know can get support with cancer, alzheimer’s or diabetes or other health issues; or, just something new to spice up your routine, please come along.
We will host drop in stalls in our cafe space and workshops and activities in our community spaces on the day. The event is free, but attendees who have booked a ticket in advance will be given priority for workshops and activities.
Please check back here in the coming months for a full list of organisations attending and we are expecting to add more nearer the time.
