Helium, Working with Community Mothers and families.

Helium –working with Community Mothers and Families in the Longford/Westmeath Area Helium is a new Arts and Health company for children, operating nationwide. Helium is committed to nurturing and honouring creativity as a natural resource for a child’s well-being. Helium supports a dynamic, child-friendly, family centred, holistic approach to children’s medical provision, within community, primary, and acute healthcare contexts. In March 2012 Community Mothers worked in partnership with Helium in facilitating workshops which were part of the Seminar Creative Connections in Mullingar. Helium also trained a group of Community mothers from Mullingar, Athlone and Longford in making some of the props used to stimulate the parent/baby relationship using simple every day items. The workshop was a huge success and all of the Community mothers really enjoyed the experience as well as learning new ways of helping parents development stimulating play experiences.
