The Raheen Family Resource Centre Community Heart Project runs healthy eating and activity programmes as well as a community garden.
The Project aims to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the Centre’s rural community and raise awareness of heart health in partnership with the Irish Heart Foundation.
The Raheen Community Heart Project is currently developing its garden and encouraging members of the local rural community to take part with a series of cookery and exercise classes. These include, healthy eating demonstrations and yoga classes for young mothers.
The Project is also working with a local secondary school running healthy eating and exercise activities with students and their parents.
The community has established an Advisory Group to inform the long-term development and sustainability of the Project.
