Every day our support staff are providing crucial help and advice to vulnerable Irish men and women throughout Birmingham. Sometimes it might be just a quick telephone call to see how they are coping today or more often than not it will mean popping in to ensure the person we are supporting has all the necessary day to day needs to get by – things like, hot water, milk, bread and checking they have taken their medication.
Sometimes it’s more serious and a drop in visit can turn into hours, especially if our service user needs medical attention, we won’t leave them on their own in times of crisis, we will ensure that they are taken good care of until everything is in place and back to normal for them.
By making a donation to Birmingham Irish you can help us make a real difference to so many people that we support in and around Birmingham.
We are the only charity in Birmingham addressing these issues with the Irish Community and working face to face where the need arises.
