A Connected Mayo 

Social Inclusion Awareness Week takes place from 15-21 October 2018. The aim of the week is to support and organise initiatives throughout the county that foster inclusion, equality and social connectedness. It is an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of people in County Mayo, to showcase the work of your organisation and/ or to organise a special activity or event which promotes inclusion.

Following on from the success of last year’s Social Inclusion Awareness Week where over 40 showcase events were held throughout the county, this year’s theme is ‘A Connected Mayo’. We are particularly interested in initiatives that explore community responses to social isolation and loneliness.

Types of events and activities could include interesting speakers, exhibitions, coffee mornings, sports events, drama, story- telling, talks and debates, seminars, information events, displays, music recitals, initiatives to improve accessibility, films etc. (the list is not exhaustive). Bear in mind, in keeping with the theme, events should be accessible to all.

A brochure of events is currently being compiled. If you would like to be included in the brochure please complete the attached booking form and return it to the Community and Integrated Development Section Mayo County Council (contact details listed on form) by September 5th 2018.
