I work with COPE Galway a community partner of NUI Galway. COPE Galway provides a range of services to the most isolated people in our community. We provide accomodationa and supports to homeless men and women, accomodation and support and outreach servcies to women and children experiencing domestic violence. We also provide community meals servcie to older people to support them to remain living in their own homes along with a number of day centres for the elderly in Galway. In December 2009 we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with NUI Galway and in the intervening period we have had students from many disciplines work with us on a large number of projects.
