Role Description

Mayo Self Advocacy Group in partnership with Mayo Sligo Leitrim Education and Training Board (MSLETB) are delighted to inform you that they have produced a video called “Keeping Safe During Covid 19”

The group felt it might be useful to share the video to support people with the vaccination process and to re-inforce the importance of social distancing and hand hygiene.

Please note the vides will not work within the citrix environment.

I would like to congratulate the Mayo Self Advocacy Group and all those involved, on this excellent production and thank them for their work in putting the video together as it will be a very useful resource for us to share.

Best wishes

Tia

After more than 50 years, Western Care Association’s Annual Door To Door Collection is now going online for the month of September.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the challenges it has presented to us, our organisation must protect our valuable and dedicated volunteers who have supported Western Care over many years. However, when one door closes another door opens and we now have the opportunity to reach out even further. Not only to our longstanding donors who have kept this campaign alive, but to all the doors that were never knocked upon before in our own local communities. We are delighted that we can now share this opportunity with you, the Mayo diaspora all over the world, who can support their Mayo Charity with the click of a button!

To donate, find us on Facebook “Western Care Association” or on www.idonate.ie/wcadoor or find the link on our website (www.westerncare.com)

Your support would be much appreciated. Thank you.
