Our community support programme primarily targets minority communities such as Travellers and the Roma Community. These programmes have a significant health promotion objective and use a community development approach to increasing the capacities of these groups.
The Traveller Health unit operates out of Taghmon and Bunclody and provides a suite of services including information and assistance with form filling. It also focuses on men’s health and runs a number of projects addressing this area.
The Roma Project is countywide and is based in Enniscorthy.
The Health advocate worker promotes and develops a range of projects around the inclusion of Roma communities in Irish Life. The project also provides translation and advocacy services for the community in dealing with doctors health services and other services they require.
The advocate works from a community development perspective which includes equality and human rights.
