Turning Point™ was set up as a registered charity in 1986 to fill a perceived gap in the Irish market for services in bereavement and grief counselling. Since then it has grown steadily in its scope and effectiveness, now offering a full range of counselling and psychotherapy services to help with most of life’s challenges and stresses.
Clients who attend Turning Point™ pay for the service. However, whenever possible we ask for only a modest contribution, and we are currently expanding this low-fee paying service. Two and a half decades later, our greatest challenge continues to be finance. We have been grateful over the years for funding received from the Family Support Agency, now incorporated into the Child Family Agency, without whose support our low cost services would not have been able to continue. However, with reduced Government funding, we depend greatly on the generosity of the public to maintain to grow our services. It would not be possible for us respond to those who need our services – whether or not they can pay – without the help of our generous Benefactors, Charitable Trusts, Corporate Donations and the generosity of Individuals and our League of Friends. We know that through all of us working together we can truly make a difference.
We need your support in the following ways:
Donations: Corporate donations and donations from self-employed people are eligible for tax-relief. Personal donations are also most welcome.
Sponsorship: There is a wide range of sponsorship opportunities available, including sponsoring a client to attend the centre, sponsoring a student who cannot afford to train as a counsellor/psychotherapist, or sponsoring equipment/supplies for the centre.
Fundraising: Organizing a fundraiser not only helps to bring in much-needed capital, but also increases awareness of Turning Point’s services amongst the community – how about organizing a coffee morning, concert, golf classic, pub quiz or any other event you think might be suitable.
Bequest: Please consider remembering Turning Point™ in your will. We greatly appreciate the public support and interest in the services we provide; it is also deeply appreciated by all who benefit from this generosity. All money raised from our fundraising efforts goes towards the provision of Counselling and Psychotherapy services to those who need them.
