Voluntary organisations urged to apply for counselling services funding

The Minister for Community, Equality, and Gaeltacht Affairs, Pat Carey T.D., today (21 January, 2011) urged voluntary organisations which provide family counselling services to apply now to the Family Support Agency for funding under their 2011 scheme of grants.

Speaking today, Minister Carey said â??this funding is used to help people deal with difficulties they are experiencing in their relationships, to help children whose lives have been affected by parental separation and to support families who have experienced the death of a family member.â?

Over â?¬10.6 million is being made available under this yearâ??s scheme.

Grants under this Scheme are available for:

  • Marriage Counselling;
  • Marriage Preparation Courses;
  • Child Counselling Services (in relation to parental separation); and
  • Bereavement Counselling/Support Services.

Minister Carey continued â??the Family Support Agency has issued application forms and information leaflets to almost 740 voluntary and community organisations nationwide, I would strongly urge other organisations who feel they may qualify for a grant to contact the Agency immediately for further information.â?

The closing date for receipt of completed applications under the scheme of grants is Friday 11th February 2011.

Application forms and further information about the scheme of grants, including assessment criteria, are available from the Family Support Agency, St Stephen’s Green House, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2. Website: or telephone: 01 611 4100.
