Local funding support for Fingal Counselling Service

Swords and District Lions Club presented Fingal Counselling Service  with a cheque for €1500 towards the running costs of this invaluable service. The Lions Club has been a long-time supporter of Fingal Counselling Service providing us with funding towards training and other projects. Lion President Sean Quigley congratulated the service for their commitment, explaining that suicide prevention programmes, which are part of Fingal Counselling Service’s skill set, are a major service project for Lions Clubs all over Ireland.

Mary Forde, on behalf of the service, thanked the Lions Club for their generous donation and expressed her gratitude for its support over many years.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Fare 2017

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Fare took place in the offices of Fingal County Council Swords on Saturday 22nd April 2017.

Fingal Counselling Service was represented by Helen Hughes and Denise McDermott. There were a number of different services represented at the fare including Tusla, The Samaritans, Teenline, and the North Dublin Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force. The Fare ran along side with the registration for the Cycle Against Suicide and was very well supported.
