IWA are currently providing a range of services including;

  • Making daily/regular phone calls to the individuals being isolated. This provides the opportunity to check in on individual’s health and provide social engagement to reduce social isolation and support positive individual mental health.
  • Utilising the transport fleet to support deliveries to individuals’ homes who are isolating with food, medication, fuel, material to keep people occupied e.g. quizzes, local paper etc.
  • IWA could provide access to its buildings to support community groups in coordinating activity for supporting vulnerable adults identified.
  • IWA will support with telecom providers to enhance communication facilities for people being isolated e.g. Skype calls, access to internet etc. on an individual needs basis.
  • To name but a few!!

If the Irish Wheelchair Association Galway (City and County) can be of assistance to you or your service users, please do not hesitate to contact us or let others know of the supports available.

Kind regards,

Service Manager
