My Community Health
Fermoy Community Health Project continues on developing sustainable health projects for individuals and families within the community.
Youghal Community Health Project was established to develop Social Gain Initiatives aimed at improving the Health & Wellbeing of the local community.
To provide opportunities for People within the Mallow Community to access Community Health Initiatives to improve overall health and well-being.
Each health project has a programme of activities and community links to empower healthy habits and support healthy choices and lifestyles.
Across our communities exist many groups and activities that support a weekly routine of social connection and friendship.
We support and create community initiatives and programmes with groups and organisations that focus on health and wellbeing
Welcome to Health
