Gaisce At Home – Gaisce Sa Bhaile

Gaisce are launching ‘Gaisce At Home’ or ‘Gaisce Sa Bhaile’. Doing Gaisce is a great way to stay active, improve a skill and help in your community (whilst maintaining social distance of course). Young people can answer Ireland’s call too!  It’s not going to be too difficult to think up a skill or physical activity you can undertake whilst at home, and your community action can be at home or ‘from home’ too, so find out what you can volunteer to help with. Everyone can play their part in getting through this challenging time and promoting active citizenship. Ask family members for ideas on what you can do for an hour a week in the various challenges at home. If you’re already registered, you may need to change the activities you’ve been doing towards your Gaisce, to ones that are possible to do in or from home – but don’t worry: we’re here to help!
