Chamber Mindfulness Month

Mindfulness 2

At the start of the pandemic, Galway Chamber focused our efforts on a business recovery programme, which aided businesses on financial and cash flow matters as well as practical issues arising as businesses opened their doors after lockdown. 

With the second wave of lockdown we realise that while information focused around finance, grants and business supports are still vital for businesses, mental health of employers, employees and their families is hugely important also 

This campaign will focus around five pillars; Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and will run for 5 weeks starting on Monday 2nd November New content will be uploaded each week!

Please sign up to our Mindfulness Newsletter below.

We want to thank our Mindfulness Partners for all of their help with this campaign.
