It’s hard to believe where this year has gone. It has been a busy one, with lots of transitions and new beginnings as we settle in under the SHEP umbrella. We started 2022 on high with news that we had been honoured to receive the overall Grand Prix award and Gold in the Best Community Health category of the All-Ireland Community & Council Awards 2021 for our ‘Relationships matter: building ACE awareness in the community’ initiative.

In May, our collaboration with the Heart of Frontline Practice continued with our third national seminar to support Ireland’s frontline practitioners. This hybrid event on 24th May at Nano Nagle Place was truly heartening for all.

We also welcomed Fern Higgins Atkinson as our new programme manager to lead the continued development and reach of our work.

Looking ahead to the last quarter of 2022, we have lots to share in our latest newsletter including details of fully funded training programmes and our collaborative initiatives.

We hope that you enjoy this update and we welcome feedback and opportunities to connect and collaborate.
