Twenty (20) people from Kerry have graduated from a course aimed at running arts activities for older people

The training programme, called Creative Exchanges, is run by Age & Opportunity and was commissioned by Cork Kerry Community Healthcare; this was the first time it was run in Kerry.

It’s a QQI accredited course for those leading creative activities with older people in residential or day care settings, and for those interested in working with older people.
