Outreach

Currently we are supporting 3 charities - Crocus, Children of Chernobyl and Blythswood Care Food Bank.
We continue our links with Combat Stress.

Crocus Group - a small Inverness based charity which was formed to provide emotional support through peer group sessions for bereaved children.  Crocus supports and empowers young people to manage their own grief rather than using a counselling approach.  Further information can be found at https://crocusgroup.org.uk/about-us/



Chernob
yl Children's Trust is a registered charity set up and run by Irish volunteers committed to helping impoverished children living in contaminated & disadvantaged areas of Belarus. We support the vitally important work of the Children’s Oncology Centre in Belarus where children and young adults with various cancers receive life-saving treatments. We work in partnership with community-based Belarusian organisations to carry out our programmes. These include: bringing children to Ireland for holidays with host families, the operation of essential programmes in Belarus for the advocacy and support for disabilities, poverty and sickness and the promotion of health and community development for marginalised children and their families across disadvantaged areas of the region. The Trust is a non-denominational, non-political, humanitarian organisation.  Further information can be found at http://www.chernobylchildrenstrust.ie/
