Sláintecare Healthy Communities
In 2021, Sláintecare Healthy Ireland in the Department of Health, working with the HSE, local authorities and community agencies, launched the Sláintecare Healthy Communities programme. This initiative will provide increased health and wellbeing services in 19 communities across Ireland, including focused within the Longford Town area.
What does it mean for the communities of Longford?
This programme will ensure local communities living in the Longford Town area have improved access to health and wellbeing services. One of the ways local people can now access such services is through new safe and inclusive Community Houses. In Longford Town, these Community Houses are located in Ardnacassa and McEoin Park. Supports offered may include education and training courses, homework clubs, men’s groups, parent and toddler groups, youth groups, counselling, access to technology and office facilities.
