Monaghan Social Inclusion Week kicked off today and will be running until Sunday the 16th of June. The annual weeklong programme is co-ordinated by the Monaghan Local Community Development Committee’s equality sub group and aims to celebrate equality, inclusion and diversity within the county. A wide range of events will be taking place throughout the week such as a number of walks, yoga and tai chi as well as information clinics
The events aim to raise awareness of the range of supports that are available to people who feel socially excluded, and to highlight the barriers that some people in our society experience on a daily basis.
More information on events taking place as part of social inclusion week can be found on the Monaghan County Council Facebook page.
