Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Mark Ward will officially launch South Dublin County Council Social Inclusion Week on Monday 19 November 2018 at 12.00 pm in County Hall, Tallaght. Our special guest is Michael Darragh MacAuley, star of the Dublin GAA football team. RAMS in Rhythm active retired choir will provide the musical entertainment for the afternoon.

The aim of this week is to highlight the positive work carried out by South Dublin County Council and other agencies to reduce social exclusion and poverty, and to promote an understanding of social inclusion and diversity in the County. Each year there has been a steady growth of strategic partners from the community and other agencies, increasing the level of participation and the quality of events.

Social Inclusion Week provides us with the platform to highlight social inclusion initiatives and promote active citizenship. Social Inclusion is about creating a society where everyone experiences full and equal participation in all aspects of life. Social Inclusion is “Everyone’s Business”.

 

During the week there will be a varied programme of events, including Literacy Awareness Training for staff, Intercultural Evening, IT Workshops, Floristry Workshops, Art and Craft Workshops, Annette Halpin Memorial Annual Tea Dance, Coffee Mornings, Nepalese Food Tasting, Toddler Time, Prize Bingo, Pamper Day for people with disabilities, Celebration of Social Inclusion through the Performing Arts in the Civic Theatre, Traditional Irish Dancing and much more. A detailed schedule for the week has been developed and is available on our website: www.sdcc.ie
