Multilingual Directory Launch

The launch of the multilingual versions of the ‘Directory of Drug & Alcohol Services in Cork & Kerry’ took place on Thursday 20th of October in the Council of Chambers.

Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Fergal Dennehy attended the launch of the latest edition.  The directory is produced by the Community Outreach Drug & Alcohol Awareness Project at Cork City Partnership and updated regularly.

“Cork City Partnership welcomes the provision of HSE South funding to enable us to make this directory available in such a wide range of languages. It is important that our newer minority community members are supported to easily access information on drug and alcohol services.” said Brenda Cahill, CEO of Cork City Partnership.

“In the last number of years there has been a significant investment in drugs services across the region. With the directory now available in multi-lingual format, we aim to meet the information and service needs across all communities in the South,” said David Lane, Co-ordinator of Drug and Alcohol Services for HSE South.

Around 2,000 people accessed the CLDATF services last year.  The aim of the multilingual directory is to reach out to all communities.

The directory is now available in a number of different languages which include Spanish, French, Polish, Lithuanian, Chinese, Russian and Arabic.  The directories can all be downloaded electronically here
