The mission of The Foundation is ‘supporting and promoting the wellbeing of young people in Ireland’.The Daffodil Foundation, is a needs led charity, we work closely with young people within communities, schools and other specialized groups within society, to be able to identify and respond to their needs where possible.

The foundation provides need-assessed financial support packages for young people leaving care, assisting in their transition to independent living. In association with the ISPCC, the foundation works directly with families and individuals living in Direct Provision. The Daffodil Foundation provides free mental health and suicide prevention workshops to schools and youth community groups, through a national outreach service supported by SCTI.[/vc_column_text][vcex_spacing][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vcex_heading text=”The difference this has made” text_align=”center” color=”#000000″ tag=”h2″][vcex_testimonials_slider animation_speed=”600″ slideshow_speed=”5000″ count=”3″ include_categories=”48″][vc_btn title=”Learn more about our After Care Supports” color=”green” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.daffodilfoundation.com%2F|||”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2411″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vcex_heading text=”ISPCC Integration Service” text_align=”left” tag=”h1″ color=”#000000″ font_size=”25″][vcex_spacing][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1612947962277{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;}” font_size=”16″]The ISPCC Integration Service, supported by The Daffodil Foundation, is a new and developing project which works with families who seek International Protection in Ireland and, as a result, end up living in Direct Provision while their application is being processed. This application can take many months or even years to be fully processed. This creates stress and anxiety for families who are already marginalised and vulnerable.

The service currently supports families residing in an Accommodation Centre, at Mosney, Co. Meath. The overall objective of this service is to support families in successfully integrating into Irish society by promoting empowerment, connection and resilience.[/vc_column_text][vcex_spacing][vc_btn title=”Learn more about our work with the ISPCC” color=”green” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ispcc.ie%2Fispcc-integration-service%2F|||”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1583215931286{margin-top: -40px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1612260746718{background-color: #ffffff !important;}”][vcex_heading text=”EXECUTIVE STATEMENT” text_align=”left” tag=”h1″ color=”#000000″ font_size=”25″][vcex_spacing][vc_column_text font_size=”16″]In meeting the objective as set out in our mission which is to support and promote the wellbeing of young people in Ireland, and having assessed the many challenges young people face in today’s society, The Daffodil Foundation adopts a flexible approach to supporting these evolving needs.

Our current focus is to:

  • Support young people leaving care through the provision of after care grants
  • Provide mental health initiatives supporting young people in the community and in education.
  • Work in partnership with ISPCC to provide an Integration Support Service to young people and families residing in Direct Provision and to campaign for change bringing about a more humane process for those seeking asylum.

We are grateful to our donors, sponsors and fundraisers for their support in raising funds for the Daffodil Foundation along with staff within the Daffodil Care Group, who have been very active in raising funds throughout the year.

We remain committed to supporting the work of Daffodil Foundation, to support and promote the wellbeing of young people in Ireland now, and into the future.
