WellComm Active

WellComm Active Initiative – Active Communities are Well Communities, funded through the slaintecare Integration Fund

WellComm Active is a community health and wellbeing initiative that seeks to empower citizens to manage their own health through increased physical activity and healthy eating.

The initiative’s focus is on delivering programmes that support healthy eating and active living, encouraging and empowering people to live healthy lives independently in their own communities.

Coordinated by Cork Sports Partnership and supported by Cork Kerry Community Healthcare Health and Wellbeing, the aim of this initiative is to support better health and increased physical activity among key populations in Cork.

The project was initially funded through the Sláintecare Integration Fund, Project ID 140.

Staying Fit for the Future

A 10-week physical activity programme for adults and older adults to improve strength & balance, range of movement, flexibility, bone strength, muscle power & falls prevention. Sessions are delivered by CSP tutors, upskilled by HSE Physiotherapists in the Better Balance Better Bones programme. Each session is 1 hour and the cost of the programme is €60.

Healthy Food Made Easy

A 6 week peer-led nutrition and cookery course developed by community dieticians, aimed at helping people of all ages to make affordable healthier choices when shopping, cooking and eating which in turn can ultimately help reduce diet related conditions. All weeks include a theory section and a cookery section. Sessions are 2½ hours and costs €5 per participant to cover the cost of the food materials.

WellComm Active at Home

When we look after our physical health, our mental health can feel the benefits too. There are lots of other things we can do along with physical activity that will enhance our health and wellbeing. 

Cork Sports Partnership in conjunction with a number of partner organisations, have put together the following health and wellbeing resources that will support you and your family through this difficult and challenging time.

TBC New Neuro Functional Training Programme (NFTP)

As part of WellComm Active, we have worked in collaboration with the HSE to develop 2 new Neuro Functional Training Programmes and locations in Cork.

The NFTP sites provide physical activity and exercise opportunities to people who have had a single neurological event or people with progressive chronic neurological conditions.
