ALONE is an organisation that enables older people to age at home.
I recruit, train and support volunteers for our Telephone Support and the Visitation and Befriending Service.
This is where a volunteer gives an hour a week of their time to provide companionship to an older person either in person, or over the phone.
We currently have many older people across Donegal in need of our services.
Would you be willing to provide companionship or be able to make calls to Older People once a week?
ALONE are seeking volunteers all over Donegal. Full training and support provided. For more information, please contact Catherine on 086 0753868 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
If interested, please sign up on our website: https://alone.ie/volunteers/

A sincere thanks goes out to all the clubs generous sponsors for their annual voluntary subscription that have kept the doors open and the lights on in the local boxing club for the past 34 years.

As a parent or guardian, parenting is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do.
However, the Family Resource Centre recognises at times life throws up challenges and these can be overwhelming.
Some examples of the support we can offer; making routines, establishing boundaries and dealing with challenging behaviours
The Family Resource Centre can help through listening ear, parenting programmes, one to one support, and a drop in clinic to offer support on issues that are affecting home life.
We also provide sign posting or referrals to other services.
For any further information please call Laura our family support community development worker on 08733350658
Seniors Alert Scheme
Raphoe Family Resource Centre is registered under Pobal’s Senior Alert Scheme to provide personal alarms to those over 65 years living alone for significant periods of time during the day, or is a carer to someone else in their household.
