'Not Around Us' Campaign Launched

19 April 2021

Healthy 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.

Online Donation System for Westside Resource Centre

25 January 2021

Over the years, Westside Resource Centre has received occasional donations from various sources. We also sometimes have minor raffles and draws during annual events - such as our Christmas Market - and these provide a fun way for people to support the Centre and to help us in the work that we do.

The Resource Centre is very grateful for the supports that it receives and we have now set up a donations page with iDonate.ie This step allows people to make a donation to the Centre by going online and this is particularly useful at the present time because of COVID-19. We hope that this approach gives another useful way of supporting the Centre... although we are looking forward to enjoying more face-to-face gatherings before 2021 is over.

You can access our donation facility by clicking the "Donate" button on the website homepage or on Westside Resource Centre's iDonate page

Thank you for your support…and Happy New Year.
