Donegal Community Development Company (DLDC) is launching a range of Health and Wellbeing programmes for people in Donegal this Autumn/Winter season.
Programmes include sessions in Pilates, Circuits, Anxiety, Mindfulness, Cookery, Nutrition, Journaling and Photography for wellbeing.
All of the programmes are free and delivered online via private Facebook Groups or Zoom, for one hour per week, for a duration of 4 to 6 weeks. A personalised health action plan & support from Community Health Facilitators is available with each of the programmes.
The Health and Wellbeing programmes are the second round of a series of online classes devised to support the people of Donegal through the Community Health Sync Project (CoH-Sync). Over the past 3 months, the CoH-Sync programme ran 7 health and wellbeing related programmes. These included classes in Art, Mindfulness, Cookery, Pilates, Gardening and General wellbeing. 120 people across Donegal have been supported to make positive health changes through receiving 1-2-1 personalised health plans and regular check-ins from Community Health Facilitators.
Feedback from participants has been extremely positive and received comments such as:
“It has made me more aware of my own health, both mental & physical. It has given me ideas to make small changes that will lead to a more physical and healthier lifestyle.”
“I now know how to meditate and am a lot more aware of what I’m serving up to my family when it comes to portion sizes.”
The project is available throughout the county and your local Community Health Facilitator will support you through our offering of new programmes for the Autumn/Winter period. These new programmes are open to people living in Donegal, Derry/Londonderry, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Leitrim who have not previously completed a course on the programme. Free materials are available for the first 15 people who register for the Art and Journaling courses.
If you would like to find out more about any of the programmes or register your interest call 087-9683868 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for registration is the 11th of September.

The CoH-Sync team of Community Health Facilitators hope to be back out delivering programmes in the community when it’s safe to so. In the meantime, they will continue to support both individuals and communities by providing health and wellbeing information and supports online or remotely via phone. If you would like to avail of these supports but don’t want to join an online class, please contact a member of the team on the number above and we will be happy to assist you.
