Call for ideas for Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2019

Posted in Connect on July 15, 2019.


Social Inclusion Awareness Week takes place from 14th-20th October 2019. This week follows on from similarly dedicated weeks held in 2017 and 2018 with lots of showcase events in many areas throughout the county.

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.

The types of events and activities that could be part of Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2019 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 August 30th, 2019. Only free events can be included in this year’s brochure. Please submit a separate booking form if you plan to run more than one event.

The up-to-date schedule, further information on events and booking details for all events will be available from mid-September.

Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week is being coordinated by Mayo LCDC’s Social Inclusion and Community Working Group. If you would more information or would like to explore ideas please drop an email to community@mayococo.ie or contact Anne or Síofra on 094 9064361
