Green Ribbon Closing Event

Phoenix Clubhouse a winner on the night!

To celebrate the See Change Green Ribbon month, Phoenix Clubhouse joined the Social Inclusion Unit team from South Dublin County Council at the Bealtaine Festival closing event and tea dance to share green ribbons and discuss mental health with everyone in attendance. Phoenix Clubhouse was a winner on the night, receiving a prize for a group arts submission. The Photo collage of baby pictures was well received and enjoyed by all!

Over 13 years in Clondalkin, Phoenix Clubhouse has often collaborated with the Social Inclusion team. We have witnessed and experienced first-hand what social inclusion truly feels like. Phoenix members have met so many people and groups in the South Dublin area through the Social Inclusion team and events. Phoenix members have a voice, a sense of belonging and are part of a community because of the continued involvement in the different opportunities across South Dublin.

 The members and staff in Phoenix Clubhouse were busy for the month of May, celebrating our ‘creativity as we age’, attending a variety of social inclusion events; including calligraphy classes, memoir writing, ballroom dance classes and choral events, to name but a few. Everywhere we go we are telling people about Phoenix Clubhouse and sharing the news that it is okay to talk about mental health, it is okay to seek support and we want everyone to know there is support available in Phoenix Clubhouse!

Joining the Social Inclusion team at this year’s tea dance was the perfect place to keep the conversation going….it is one of the most wonderful events on the counties calendar…..and was truly inclusive, accepting, kind and diverse. People from all walks of life, from varied experience, everyone had something to share to the conversation……. and remember if you or any of your family or friends would benefit from the support of Phoenix Clubhouse contact us to today at phoenixclubhouse@eve.ie or call 01-4670632 and arrange to visit us in 96 Monastery Road, Clondalkin, Dublin 22.
