Inspired to Change Project funded by Big Lottery

The grant was used for four project under the heading ‘Inspired To Change’. These four projects covered: • Nutrition and health seminar • Alcohol and drugs seminar • Cooking atelier • Educational support

Nutrition and health seminar

One of the benefits of this workshop included the attendance of two nurses who undertook quick diagnostic tests on blood pressure and sugar monitoring on audience members who requested it. Some of the results for individuals indicated high levels which required further attention and monitoring. Therefore, those were encouraged to seek doctor advices.

Alcohol and drugs seminar

The purpose behind the first three projects was to address issues of poor lifestyle in the community. The aim was to empower residents to understand the problems associated with these public health issues and provide workshops to both demonstrate the areas of concern and offer alternative practices and lifestyles.

Cooking Atelier

The response to the workshops were all extremely positive with a high level of satisfaction with the purpose and outcomes of the days.  There were essentially two workshops which dealt with aspects of food and nutrition. The earlier one on nutrition and health had a more educative slant and was complemented later by the cooking atelier which provided a more practical and hands-on approach.
