About this Event

What do we need for the wellbeing of the community of County Carlow?

That is the question being posed by Carlow Public Participation Network (PPN), and we want to hear from all the groups and organisations across the three Municipal Districts of County Carlow. Developing a Vision for Community Wellbeing means thinking about what we have and what we need to help each Municipal District of the County to be as great as it can be for us and for future generations.

“The best that it can be for this and future generations”

Carlow PPN are delighted to be rolling out a new National Initiative on Community Wellbeing, as the wellbeing of the community affects everyone within it. The PPN is hosting an event on Wednesday 23rd October 2019 in Teach Bhríde, Chapel Lane, Templeowen at 6.00pm for those living within the Municipal District of Tullow, to start this important conversation. Groups will also be able to feed in online after the initial workshop. All this information will be brought together and be used to influence policy and guide the work of the PPN and its representatives in influencing policy, and working towards achieving the community’s goals.

For further information, please contact Gráinne O Neill on 059/9172495 or email carlowppn@carlowcoco.ie

What is Community Wellbeing?

Wellbeing is an increasingly common term that can describe wider conditions than good physical and mental health, which we need as individuals and communities to have a better quality of life, a healthier environment and increased prosperity. Some of these things can be easily measured, like the number of pre-school places, or the speed with which an ambulance can get to a sick person. Others are less easily measured, such as our pride of place, our heritage and the way in which we all look after each other. All aspects of wellbeing are connected to each other. So, for example, if our natural environment is poor, it will affect our mental and physical health as well as our economy. In other words, all the parts of our community wellbeing are interconnected.On the night Carlow PPN will look at community wellbeing under the six headings.

  • Social and community development
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Economy and resources
  • Health (physical & mental)
  • Values, culture and meaning
  • Participation, democracy and good governance

By using these 6 headings across all the country, we can see whether we in County Carlow have the same concerns and causes for celebration as others.

Further information on the wellbeing vision being rolled out around the country can be found on www.communitywellbeing.ie
