Social Prescribing in Carlow


St Catherine’s Community Services Centre is delighted to introduce the new Carlow Social Prescribing Service.  This is a free support that aims to reduce social isolation and improve people’s health and wellbeing.

The service is based within the community and will operate from St. Catherine’s C.S.C and the New Oak Community Centre.  The aim of the Carlow Social Prescribing Service is to link people with non-medical sources of support within the community to improve physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

The service will provide individuals with information on areas of interest such as social groups, exercise classes, relaxation sessions, volunteering opportunities, support services and much more all in their local area.

‘Runuary’ with Athletics Ireland

Jessie and Thomas Barr, the Olympic siblings, today launched the
Irish Life Health ‘Runuary’ programme to support runners, of all levels to run January and not let it run them.

With the uncertainty of the last few months, many of us have turned to running to relieve stress, clear our head and to feel more in control.

Starting on January 1st, it encourages runners, from beginners to the more experienced, to commit to challenging but realistic running programmes, with a target distance to be completed on January 31st.
