Public Invited to Community Well-Being Event in Craigavon Civic & Conference Centre

Parents, young people, community groups and everyone in between are invited to a Community Well Being Event taking place in Craigavon Civic Centre on Thursday 17th November.

Focusing on relaxation, fun and self-care, this event will also feature information stands with details on support services for drugs, alcohol and mental health.

Open to the whole community there will be guest speakers and interactive activities helping to educate people on the services provided by organisations within the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon area as well as improving access to these services.

Look out for signposting, advice, guidance, information and intervention as well as free health checks, colour breathing and acupuncture as well as goodie bags and spot prizes.  Light refreshments will also be served on the night.

“This is the first event of this kind and will show how all of these organisations can work together to ultimately help those who need their support,” commented Councillor Julie Flaherty, Chair of the PCSP.

“We would like to encourage people to come along, get involved, enjoy some relaxation workshops as well as getting some vital information and advice on these important issues. There will also be an emotive talk from Theresa Burke whose son sadly died as a result of taking drugs, in the hope it will persuade other young people not to get involved.”

The event has been organised by Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon Policing & Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) in partnership with Southern Drug and Alcohol Communication Team Connections Service (SDACT).

It takes place on Thursday 17th November from 6.30pm to 9pm. If you are interested in attending this event please rsvp to aisling.gillespie@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk by 10th November. For further information please contact 028 3831 2491.
