Family Carers Ireland is a registered charity (number CHY 10962) and a company limited by guarantee, emerging from the coming together of two long standing charities of over 25 years – The Carers Association and Caring for Carers in 2016. The merger brings the best of both charities together whilst broadening the range of services and supports to family carers and giving one national voice to represent fairness for carers. 

See our website for all the services that Family Carers Ireland has to offer.

Carer Groups

Family Carers Ireland runs carer groups all over the country. These groups meet regularly, usually once a month. The carers that attend set the agenda. Carers often use the time to share coping strategies and local information in addition to offering emotional support. Guest speakers such as Public Health Nurses, HSE and Social Welfare experts are invited to meetings to address carers on issues of interest to them. Groups provide a valuable opportunity to meet others with similar caring experiences. Indeed this is how many enduring friendships began.

Groups are also integral to the operation of Family Carers Ireland. We operate on the basis of group membership because it believes that local networks best promote inclusion and support at local, regional and national levels. Groups play a vital role in promoting recognition of the identity, contribution and needs of family carers, in articulating existing and emerging need and in representing family carers’ issues both to policymakers and to the general community. The organisation recognises three categories of group as eligible for membership in this capacity: local groups, regional forums and virtual groups.

Five or more members coming together with the same goals and meeting on a regular basis may form a group affiliated with Family Carers Ireland. Members of FCI groups will be united by a common bond, which could simply be a shared geographical area, or caring for family members with a condition in common, e.g. parents of children with Autism / ADHD.

There are three different fee options in relation to membership:

An annual subscription fee of €10, (€8 for group members) enables you to become a full member of FCI and add your voice to that of other family carers.
In addition, full members can, on payment of an annual €10 supplementary fee, avail of a discount card which entitles you to our negotiated exclusive deals.
Some groups may opt to become Associate Members of Family Carers Ireland, for €250 per group per annum.
Your membership fee helps to fund a range of services to carers and their families.

Carer groups allow carers to:

  • share their experiences, feelings, ideas, concerns, information and problems
  • access information on their rights and entitlements
  • act together to highlight carers issues with decision makers
  • have a sense of connection with other family carers in similar circumstances
  • have a break from the caring situation
  • relax, socialise and learn from other carers
  • cope from day to day

I.D.E.A.L is a brand new service.  To date it is the only one of its kind available in Ireland and is now providing home-based alcohol detoxification services for people who are dependent on alcohol and wish to stop drinking.
We provide "at home" care and support for the whole family in the family home.
Our program works by having a visiting health care worker, recovery mentor and family facilitor who comes to the family home until detoxification treatment is completed and recovery is well under way.
Our program lasts for a total of 7 weeks from start to finish.  Alcohol detoxification medication is prescribed for comfort and safety 
Home treatment is proven to be more cost effective than residential and this can be another huge benefit to financially restricted families.
it is not always necessary to be admitted to hospital or rehab for alcohol detoxification.


Home alcohol detoxification is suitable for

  • Self employed
  •  Lone parents
  •  Those in the public eye
  •  Low income families
  •  Those who do not wish to be separated from family for treatment

The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC) is Ireland’s oldest and most well-known children’s charity.  The ISPCC has a long, proud history of service delivery and advocacy on behalf of children.

Our Vision:

To see an Ireland where all children are heard and valued.

Our Work:
The ISPCC is the only organisation in Ireland providing unique 24 hour support services for children and young people through our Childline service. Childline receives the majority of its 2,300 calls and messages per day after 6pm each evening, when most other support services are closed. Childline receives no government funding, relying on the generosity of donors and volunteers to help run this vital, unique service.

ISPCC support workers and volunteer mentors also work with over 1,500 individual children and families nationwide each year through our suite of ISPCC support services  Our support workers encounter many issues such as emotional and behavioural problems, anxiety, grief, risk of drug and alcohol abuse and early school leaving.

The ISPCC is a child centred organisation providing a range of independent and unique services which are preventative and empowering in nature.

Our Targets:

    Inclusion – to include children in society
    Support – giving children the support they need to work through emotional problems
    Protection - preventing cruelty to children
    Consultation & Participation - seeing children as equals and letting them have a say
    Citizenship - valuing children’s rights as citizens


Our Funding:
The ISPCC receives less that 10% of funding from the Government and so has to fundraise 90% of its annual income; relying on the generosity of the general public, companies and schools. In 2011, we need to raise over €4.5 million to maintain our services and continue to be there, 24 hours a day, for children and young people in Ireland.

Our Services:
ChildFocus & TeenFocus: Therapeutic interventions for children and young people who are experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties.

Youth Mentoring: A mentor volunteer is matched with a young person to support them.

Childline / Childline Online / TeenTxt: A FREE service for children and young people to access to talk about what's going on for them and what they would like to see happen.
