These trying times have tested us all, especially those grappling with mental health issues and throughout, The Parent Rooms has been resolute in ensuring that all parents have access to timely and appropriate mental health support.
However, this has not been without its challenges. While we are heartened by the ongoing generosity of those who donate and organise fundraising events, like many charities, we have experienced a significant impact on our income.
This comes at a time when the demand for our services is greater than ever.
Therefore, we turn to our cherished friends and supporters with a heartfelt plea to put on your thinking caps. We invite you to devise innovative ways to raise funds in this challenging climate. The guide below provides tips and inspiration, but feel free to let your creativity shine as you join us to support more parents than ever before.
Whether you’re getting inventive in the kitchen, hosting coffee mornings, or staying fit with workouts or physical challenges, there are numerous ways to raise funds to support mental health in Northern Ireland.
Unleash your creativity and host a photography competition. Set daily themes, collect entries, and encourage participants to vote for their favourites by donating to your JustGiving page.
Learn a New Skill:
