At Dublin Simon Community we believe everyone in society has a right to access services enabling physical and psychological health and wellbeing. Our service strives to address the inequity of access to exercise facilities and expertise for the homeless to access the enormous physical and mental benefits of exercise. 

A fun and friendly approach to health and wellbeing through education, nutrition, physical activity and lifestyle change by promoting healthy habits among both clients and staff. 

Our Mission: 

Our aim is to help people achieve a balanced lifestyle through means of health education, nutritional advice, movement, and mindfulness activities. 

Developing confidence is our key aim at the Health and Wellbeing service. It is our goal to help restore client confidence. Confidence that may have been lost through years of addiction, relationship breakdown or any other reason one may find themselves looking to us for help. 

Many people who are linked in with us or have been involved with us in the past have reported positive attitudes towards their overall health and wellbeing. Clients have been successful in cutting down on smoking habits, experienced improvements in body composition through healthier diets as well as improved mental attitude. It is important to us that each client regain and retain a positive attitude towards other things that are going on in their lives providing people with the courage and self-belief to move forward themselves

“My whole recovery is around the Health and Wellbeing service. I train here every day and I do the fun runs, football training and swimming too. I’d be lost without it all. It all happened through this gym. Sometimes, you think there is no hope but there is hope but it takes just one person to believe in you for things to go right.”
