Well done to the Enable Ireland team at St Laurence’s House in Cork who were finalists recently at the Irish Healthcare Centre Awards which took place on September 27th, 2019 in Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin.

Their project 'Enable Ireland - Making Holidays Happen' was a finalist in the Healthcare Initiative/Project - Patient Education/Lifestyle Project - In Community Centres/Clinics.  Although they didn’t win in their category, this was fantastic recognition for the work that has been done by the team there in supporting residents to organise their dream holidays, in many cases travelling abroad. 

The team from St Laurence’s also showcased their work at the HSE National Sharing day in the Pillar Room, Rotunda Hospital Dublin on September, 25th.  At the sharing day, the HSE chose projects from different organisations around the country to showcase the amazing work that is currently been done.  The team demonstrated the initiative using 'Our holidays are in our hands' poster which had photos of residents and their trips abroad.   On the day they met with Dr.  Cathal Morgan, Head of Operations HSE and Ms. Leigh Gath, Confidential Recipient HSE.
