About us

Current topic

Relationships and Sexual Health is Galway County Comhairle’s main topic for 2017. We plan to complete a ‘Sexting’ animation film and to host workshops on identifying the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships.

Our secondary topic was Supporting Refugees, a joint project with Galway City Comhairle. We had fantastic success with this project and were announced the overall winners in the Community Based Youth Initiatives at the Pride of Place Awards for their work on Supporting Refugees.We undertook intercultural training to do the following: understand the Syrian Refugee crisis, support young refugees and asylum seekers to integrate in their communities, to understand the cultural differences, and to support the needs of young people leaving Direct Provision. We hosted a cultural evening to raise awareness and promote social cohesion in Galway city.
