Galway Gold Star Disability Initiative
The Gold Star standard award acknowledges agencies, businesses, organisations, community facilities and services that make adaptations and take measures to have their buildings, amenities and services made more welcoming and accessible to all people.
The ultimate aim of the Gold Star Project is to promote greater independence, integration and participation for all people in their local communities.
Galway Migrant Service
Galway Migrant Service was established by the Galway City Partnership in May 2007 to provide dedicated specialised information, advocacy and support services for Migrants and their families in Galway City and County.
The service is strictly confidential and is delivered on a one-to-one basis.
What we do:
GMS provides information, guidance and support to members of our new communities on a comprehensive range of issues…
The EU provides funding for a broad range of projects and programmes covering various areas, from education, research, employment and regional development to the environment, humanitarian aid, agriculture, and the marine, among many others.
Significant support is available to small and medium-sized businesses, non-governmental and civil society non-profit organisations, young people, researchers, farmers, and public bodies, to name a few.

Wellbeing with Wally
These continue to be anxious times for us all, not least some of the younger members of our families. Galway City Partnership has produced a number of videos for children to help reduce fears and anxiety. The videos feature Wally, a child-sized puppet with the message that all children can be ‘Covid Superheroes’
Choose Galway Social Enterprise
Galway City Partnership has led out on an Awareness Raising Initiative for Social Enterprises (ARISE)
The ‘Choose Galway Social Enterprise’ campaign has been launched by a group of social enterprises in Galway to raise awareness about the importance of discovering and choosing social enterprises. The Galway social enterprises involved in the campaign are: An Mheitheal Rothar; BounceBack Recycling; Galway City Partnership; Galway Community Circus; GOCOM Radio and Westside Resource Centre. You might be familiar with these organisations, but you might not know that they are social enterprises and that you can make a bigger social impact by choosing their products and services.
This project was approved by Government with support from the Dormant Accounts Fund’.
Examples include but are not limited to COPD, asthma, diabetes, stroke, heart conditions, multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain and depression.
