In 2021, Sláintecare Healthy Ireland in the Department of Health, working with the HSE and local authorities and community agencies, launched the Sláintecare Healthy Communities Programme to provide increased health and wellbeing services in 19 community areas across Ireland.
An evidenced based process identified local areas in which health and wellbeing risk factors are particularly concentrated and where particular initiatives will be delivered to help promote and improve the overall health and wellbeing of people in those communities. These initiatives will be delivered through partnership working with a range of partners (HSE, local authorities and community groups) working together to provide dedicated services to build lasting improvements in health and wellbeing.
How Let's Grow Together is involved?
Let’s Grow Together! as part of the Sláintecare Healthy Communities Initiative are offering a selection of trainings and workshops for parents and caregivers.
To ensure the local communities selected have access to the full enhanced health and wellbeing programme, a core group of services will be established in each area to support people’s wellbeing within that community, providing better access to the range of services needed to help improve and promote healthier lifestyle behaviours.
