About Us

How you can support us?

As a registered charity, fundraising is an integral part of our organisation and without it we would not be able to continue to provide the much-needed services we do. The Anam Croí shop provides our main source of funding, however we rely heavily on other fundraising activities to support our work and are constantly surprised and delighted by the generosity and support of our community.
