Good afternoon, welcome to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland

Online Donation

YSPI don’t receive any state funding and we rely on the generosity of the public and businesses to support our work. It will cost us about €6,000 to fund the Kerry Education Resource Centre for 12 months. This includes rent, rates and utilities. The Kerry Education Resource Centre will be staffed by volunteers but the Centre will also provide a base for our highly trained Educational Facilitators as well as counsellors.

There are just so many young people in crisis at the moment so we are looking for support from local businesses to sponsor our Resource Centre for County Kerry. If 25 local Kerry businesses could make a donation of just €250, which would also qualify for tax relief, we would be fully funded and running before Christmas; and unfortunately Christmas is one of our busiest times of the year.

Please help us to continue to provide these vital service to students, teachers and parents in Kerry by donating even a small amount. Big or small, every donation is special to us and we will ensure that your local schools are aware of your support for the Kerry Education Resource Centre. All sponsors will receive a Donation Receipt for tax purposes.
