Westside Resource Centre - Welcome
Westside Resource Centre CLG is a community-based organisation with charitable status. We opened our doors on Seamus Quirke Road in 2001, having moved from the old premises in the Westside Enterprise Park. The new Westside Resource Centre building was officially opened on 6th June of that year by President Mary McAleese. Westside Resource Centre is managed by a Voluntary Committee on behalf of the Local Community.
Westside Resource Centre provides fully serviced offices to a variety of services and local branches of national organisations.
We support community work in the local area and are very much involved with community initiatives such as Westside Arts Festival, Westside Christmas Market, Social Inclusion Week and Culture Night.
Westside Resource Centre has a range of meeting rooms available for hire by community, voluntary and support groups. Over thirty local and national organisations use the resource centre's facilities throughout the year.
The resource centre serves as a base for a number of local community groups such as Westside Community Patchers, Westside Men's Club, Westside Craft Group and Westside Community Organic Garden.
Not Around Us Campaign LaunchedHealthy Galway City and Galway CYPSC, in partnership with a range of stakeholders, are delighted to launch the Not Around Us initiative to create smoke free environments for children and young people. Not Around Us is about promoting an environment where it is easier for those who smoke to quit, and stay quit, and to help de-normalise smoking for the next generation. Watch the launch video to learn more about this initiative.
The purpose of Not Around Us is to:
1. Help protect children and young people from second-hand smoke exposure.
2. Contribute to the denormalisation of smoking for children and young people.
3. Reduce environmental nuisance, cost of cleaning and damage that discarded tobacco products create.
4. Signpost to HSE QUIT services.
