GAA HEALTHY CLUB PROJECT- PHASE 3 APPLICATIONS
The Healthy Club Project (HCP) began in 2013, in partnership with Healthy Ireland, HSE, National Office for Suicide Prevention, and is kindly supported by Irish Life. Its aim is to make every GAA club in Ireland a hub for health, capable of providing their members and communities with programmes that support their physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.
Phase 3 of the HCP was launched in Croke Park by the Minister for Health, Simon Harris on Monday 15th January. All clubs can apply to participate in phase 3 via an online Expressions of Interest form (EOI) which can be accessed here.
The closing date is 5pm Monday, January 29th. Please keep in mind that we are recruiting circa 90 new clubs in this phase.
