Building Healthier Communities

NDCN offers a variety of health development classes and workshops to community and voluntary groups and organisations. These can be arranged to take place at the group’s own venue if suitable, at NDCN’s Resource Centre if available, or at another venue if appropriate. Classes and workshops are facilitated by the Community Development & Health Worker, Greg Martin.

Classes are free but there may be some costs for resources, materials, etc. To find out more about the courses and workshops available, please see our activity information below or contact Greg on 028 9146 1386 or email:


Before lockdown we ran a Living Well Course to support people to make their house a home, to improve their mental health & well being.

This video showcases the key messages behind the project and we hear from those who took part – link to watch is below:

Accessible Bereavement Resource Pack

A new ‘Accessible Bereavement Resource Pack’ has been produced by Beyond Words, a partnership project between Cruse Bereavement Care in Northern Ireland and the Stroke Association charity, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Reaching Out: Connecting Older People’ programme.

The pack provides information for stroke survivors, carers and professionals and highlights the added difficulty that people with aphasia can have when expressing their emotions and dealing with grief. It provides advice and communication tools which can be used by health and social care staff and others to support people with communication difficulties to express their feelings associated with bereavement.
