“WE NEED YOUR EYES AND EARS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST SUICIDE”
Galway East Life Support group are anxious to establish a network of people in County Galway and beyond who are interested in highlighting the issues around Suicide.
Ordinary members will be circulated with information and contacted from time to time about issues in their respective areas or which have a greater importance to the general area. Members will be expected to attend the AGM in March of every year and other meetings from time as necessary but they will not be required to attend every meeting as the GELS group will be run by the elected committee.
Education through training courses such as Assist , Safe talk and other recognised courses are supported , organised and funded by the group . All of the courses are either delivered and accredited by the HSE or other credible organisations. The membership would be expected to identify areas and help in the organisation and delivery of these courses as well as in the organising of major awareness events and publicity campaigns .
Members would also act as conduit for the passing on of information to and from individuals and communities to the GELS group.
The purpose of GELS is:
“Saving lives through Education , Prevention, Awareness and Support”.
We are inviting any person who may be interested in joining our group to fill in the attached membership form and return to: Secretary of GELS, Arthur Carr, G.E.L.S. Center, Cullens Yard, Main Street, Ballinasloe, County Galway or contact him on 085 123 78 78
