You can see the previous webinar from April ‘Why Men’s Health?’ here: https://bit.ly/3umyAY0 . Men’s Health Week is an opportunity to focus on the wellbeing of men and boys and the key theme in 2021 is encouraging everyone to begin the process of ‘MAKING THE CONNECTIONS’ and to ‘CHECK IN, CHECK UP, CHECK IT OUT’. This call to action speaks to the key priority following the impact of COVID-19 and the need for us all to rebuild and nourish our networks and support structures.

Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative
The Expression of interest for DEYLI 2021-2022 is now open. The ideal is that your club take the DEYLI initiative on board and recruit young people to get involved in the programme. We ask clubs to have a minimum of two DEYLI facilitators. Facilitator training is delivered by Foróige and brings you through the running of the programme within your club. The running period for a club tends to be the school year, I have attached some FAQ’s regarding the programme. Kevin Spain a former DEYLI tutor hosted an excellent webinar last week that went through all the details regarding DEYLI. Click HERE to re-watch the webinar. It’s a great initiative and a really good opportunity for that age group to get some valuable skills and a significant qualification. Blánaid will be happy to answer any questions you have on the programme on 01 819 2387.
