Boyle’s Family Resource Centre was the venue recently for the launch of the Roscommon Wellbeing Toolkit for children and young people.
The Toolkit was launched by Minister of State with responsibility for Public Health, Well Being and National Drugs Strategy Frank Feighan.
The tools and resources in the toolkit aim to support children and young people’s wellbeing in Roscommon and can be used by those working with children in many different contexts in the County.
It contains information on the importance of routine and a healthy lifestyle and tips to help children and young people understand feelings and emotions.
There are a variety of activities in the toolkit which are suitable for all ages.
The development of this toolkit has been funded through the Community Resilience Fund which was provided by the Department of Health to Roscommon Children and Young People’s Services Committee to assist in responding to emerging needs arising from Covid 19 pandemic restrictions.
The toolkit is the result of collaboration between a number of different services in the county including: Boyle Family Resource Centre, Roscommon Youth Service Foróige, Child and Family Agency – Tusla, HSE Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Roscommon CYPSC.
The toolkit is now available throughout Roscommon and will shortly be available on line.
