Eimear Purcell said: “I was delighted to participate in this event and listen to the other speakers on the night. Seeing a community-led response to the difficulties that people are facing was inspiring.”

She added: “Not only was this a community being proactive around health and wellbeing, it was a fantastic opportunity to network with other services and see GROWs place in the bigger picture of service provision.”
