The Whitechapel Mission has been serving the homeless and marginalised for 143 years – including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs. By encouraging each person to address the issues which caused their homelessness, we help them to gain the skills and confidence to make lasting changes in their lives.
icap is one of the few culturally-specific counselling and psychotherapy services available to the Irish community. Talking about a distressing issue can help to bring clarity to a personal situation, and enable people to identify patterns of destructive behaviour that can affect how they build relationships or the way they live their lives.
We support education to give brighter futures to young people from underprivileged communities. One of our main areas of focus is helping older students complete their education and we do this by providing sponsorship to students in the latter stages of their secondary education. Once a student we support completes their secondary education we will then continue to support them at third level to help them complete their education. Since Calcutta Connect was founded in 2010 we have been proud of the excellent relationship we have developed with Friends of Calcutta.
Teenage Cancer Trust
Young people with cancer need specialised nursing care and support. We're the only UK charity providing this, but right now we can only help half of young people diagnosed with cancer.
