Daffodil Foundation

Our Work

The Daffodil Foundation was launched in July 2015. The mission of The Foundation is ‘supporting and promoting the well-being of young people in Ireland’. The Daffodil Foundation, is a needs led charity, we work closely with young people within communities, schools and other specialised 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 wellness workshops and suicide prevention workshops to schools and youth community groups, through a national outreach service supported by SCTI.

The Daffodil Foundation is a charity which was launched by the Board and Management of The Daffodil Care Group to support and promote the wellbeing of young people in Ireland. Our mission statement provides the flexibility to assess evolving challenges faced by young people in Ireland and to apply our resources accordingly.

“Leaving care fund has helped me become independent in saving money and budgeting. It has given me a good start in the world of adulthood. Without the leaving care fund I would be unable to live independently and the prospect of being able to attend college and getting a degree would be non-existent to me.”
