John’s College Public Open Day Sunday 8th November

November 6, 2015 Posted in : Galzacs, Galzacs Guide, Galzacs15, Homelessness, Housing, Ireland

On Sunday 8th November, John’s College is reopening its doors to the Waterford Public. An Open Day will take place from 1pm-4pm and it will give the people of Waterford a glimpse of this fantastic project which has just been completed. The development includes 21 new apartments in the College itself, with a 10-bed group home and 36 new-build one-bed apartments adjoining the Folly.

Respond! also plans to open up a number of essential support services within John’s College including a Day Centre, Community Education Centre, Activation Room, Counselling Service and a Sensory Garden for Older People and people with specific needs and requirements. It is hoped that the first tenants will be offered their apartments by the end of November. Around the same time, a conference on loneliness and social isolation among Older People will take place in the Community Education Centre within the College in partnership with University College Cork.

According to Fr Patrick Cogan of Respond Housing Association: “We are delighted to be reopening the doors of John’s College again. The redevelopment of John’s College is great news for Waterford and will provide a sustainable community for Older People who wish to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. The extra support services including the Day Centre, Activation Room and Community Education Centre will ensure that Older People remain active within their own community and this will help to counteract loneliness and social isolation”.

The total project costs of building John’s College came to €12 million. Some €8 million of this was made available in State mortgages to Respond! from Waterford City Council through the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government. The remaining €4million was provided by Respond! of which some €2.25 million came in a private borrowing initiative from AIB Bank. Respond are now in the process of raising funds to kit out essential services such as the Day Centre, Community Education Centre and Activation Room.

According to Philip O’ Reilly of Respond Housing Association: “Over the next number of months, Respond! will be organising a number of key events to raise vital funds to equip the key support services within John’s College for the benefit of the whole community. We will be running a Dog Night in Kilcohan Greyhound Park on Saturday 5th December and would appeal to the people of Waterford to support this event and other upcoming events if possible.

Respond! was founded in Waterford in 1981 by Franciscans and incorporated in 1982. To date, Respond! has provided some 5,500 dwelling units for families, homeless and disabled persons, older persons and those in need, right across the country.
