This year as part of our corporate social responsibility program, we partnered with Barnardos’ ‘Making Spirits Bright’ campaign. We invited Aisling Andrews, Partnership Leap with Barnardos to visit our offices to share more about their important work for children. From Aisling’s presentation:
“Every day in Ireland a child’s potential is lost to issues such as poverty, neglect, domestic violence, homelessness and parental mental health problems or substance abuse. Barnardos provides services & programmes to support families in need, giving children back their childhood and the chance at a better future.”
The team gathered for a brief presentation with Aisling who talked about Barnardos’ various programmes for supporting children and families throughout Ireland. Whether it be school readiness programs and breakfast clubs or supports for literacy and teen parents, they are on the front lines addressing the needs of Ireland’s youngest inhabitants.It was an inspiring afternoon and we’re thrilled to be supporting Barnardos’ important work.
