EQUAL Ireland is delighted to announce that our nomination of Brendan, EQUAL Ireland Project Coordinator and Participant Support Person, as the COVID-19 Community Response Champion for Galway City has been successful. Brendan will be helping to coordinate the response of the Voluntary Sector in the City to meet the needs of vulnerable and elderly people during this pandemic. For obvious reasons we sincerely hope that this will be a short duration assignment!
Obviously though, it will mean that Brendan will have less time available to EQUAL Ireland and as a consequence we are reorganising to meet the new circumstances but this does not in any way mean that our determination to see all of our programmes delivered and all of our Participants graduate is in any way diminished!
Good Luck to Brendan and Congratulations!!!
The EQUAL Ireland Team
Message to all EQUAL Ireland Programme Participants
EQUAL Ireland is committed to working with you throughout this pandemic to ensure that you successfully graduate as originally planned and we will be doing our level best, with your support and understanding, to achieve our shared objectives!!!
Nuala, Eddie, Brendan and Eoin and all of our tutors and support people!
Following the government announcement, all EQUAL Ireland scheduled workshops are cancelled until further notice. We will continue to deliver programmes using online methodologies and will be in contact with each class and participant directly. We will provide further updates and contingency plans on this Website and directly to participants in the coming days. EQUAL Ireland staff will continue to work from home (with phones diverted) so please do feel free to contact us as usual during this time.
