The next round of ‘We Can Quit’ courses run by the Irish Cancer Society will begin in Kilbarrack and Raheny on January 23.

The courses aim to offer women the support to quit smoking, with courses taking place in the KLEAR Adult Education Centre in Kilbarrack and the Grange Woodbine Community Centre in Raheny.

Women are invited to register their interest now for the programme.

Participants in the We Can Quit programme attend weekly group sessions and receive one-to-one support. They will also be offered 12 weeks of free nicotine replacement therapy.

Caitriona Reynolds, community cancer prevention officer, said: “Giving up smoking is extremely difficult and a huge challenge for people, but We Can Quit offers women the support and encouragement to get through it.

“Women today often lead very busy lives with many commitments. Through the programme, they can access a friendly network of like-minded women and know that they have the full support of their community and the Irish Cancer Society behind them.

“I would urge any women in the Kilbarrack and Raheny areas to register for the course. We look forward to welcoming the women, supporting them, and seeing them graduate at the end of it.”

The Kilbarrack course begins on January 23 at 11.30am in KLEAR Adult Education Centre, while the Raheny course begins at 7pm that evening in the Grange Woodbine Community Centre.

We Can Quit is run in partnership with the HSE, Northside Area Partnership and Lloyds Pharmacy.
