About the charities:

Aware is a voluntary organisation which assists that section of the population whose lives are directly affected by depression. 400,000 people in Ireland currently suffer from depression but many hide their depression and never get help. Sadly, over 500 people take their own life each year. Since its foundation in 1985 Aware has been working energetically to support sufferers of depression and their families and to dispel the myths and misunderstandings of this devastating illness.

The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation helps young children who are born with or develop brain damage and who suffer severe intellectual and physical developmental delay as a result. The service includes home visits, advice, information, lobbying and bereavement support. “The gift of time” is how parents have described the support from Jack & Jill. Time to do the normal things that others take for granted, like sleeping, shopping, visiting friends or taking the other children to the park – with the peace of mind that their sick child is being well cared for. The Foundation requires over €3 million per annum to operate this service.

The foundation believes that by increasing awareness and knowledge through mobile information units we can reach as many people as possible – and in doing so promote early detection and treatment. The Marie Keating foundation works closely with various cancer-related groups and organisations to complement and optimise efforts to eradicate cancer as a life threatening disease.
