As the Project facilitator in disability support and mental health supports, we rely on co-production in the community. One of our valued assets is the City of Dublin ETB, Finglas Adult Education Service.  It is usually our first step to accessing knowledge and support, The Finglas branch was a personal journey for me also as I rediscovered my own wellbeing through their Community Education Classes in Cogitate Behavioural Therapy and Yoga Sandra Dillon, Meeting House Club

The course was great-I rent my house and I can’t do much to it, but our tutor gave us loads of cheap and practical ideas to cheer up the house that I can take with me when I leave type of thing. I am made a gallery wall  that has transformed my living room, I was getting depressed looking at it. She also gave us lots of ideas about how using lighting such as lamps can make such a big difference and how splashes of colour can really lift a room. The tutor was fantastic and I really loved the course. Avril Murphy, Interior Design Learner

Doing this course was really good for me  and  it broadened my mind in lots of directions. I’ve really enjoyed the group discussions and learned so much about diversity and different views. It really opened my eyes. Learner, Social Justice Class

 I think I’ve learned more from this course than I have in any other part of life so far. It has taught me to understand that it is ok for me to put myself first because when you understand who you are, it is easier to respond well to life, people, situations, instead of reacting which is actually very damaging to your health.  Siobhan Cleary, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Learner

I’d never done Yoga before or Mindfulness and this class was brilliant. Not only did it give me a bit of calm during the week I also felt my body and mind get stronger and I felt less anxious. I hope to do it again in September as its now a part of my week. Learner, Yoga and Mindfulness Class

May I take this opportunity to send my enormous thanks the City of Dublin ETB, for yet another excellent informative school term. We changed from a physical classroom onto a virtual classroom setting via ZOOM to our homes during this ongoing global pandemic of Covid-19. On a personal note, this new classroom format has been both effective and emotionally lifesaving whereby class participants were all able to continue to meet virtually as well as keeping in touch visually. Patricia Brazil, Computer Class Learner

I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Zoom’ community education class during the COVID-19 lock-down. The confidence I have gained from the class has given me energy and an appetite to continue to develop my skills. The work is so enjoyable, and I appreciate all the efforts and planning that goes into each class. Eilis Kinnane, Drawing Class Learner

 My experiences of zoom classes during lockdown have been completely positive.  I look forward to class returning in the autumn and surely at that stage I will have had the much-needed haircut; they may not recognise me! Ainé Leonard, Computer Class Learner

I loved doing these classes. Always looked forward to what the tutor was going to do the following week and met some new friends too. These classes helped me immensely. Not only are these classes very creative they are also very therapeutic. Bernie Devoy, Crafts Class Learner
