Did You Know that Volunteering is Good for You?
We all have so much going on in our lives, lots of strains and stresses. Being kind can get pushed to one side, in favour of what is urgent or what is trending now. But taking time to be kind to other people can make you feel good, help reduce stress and be beneficial for your own emotional wellbeing.

Why Fundraise For Fegans?
Counselling – Many charitable organisations are concentrating on campaigns or helplines. This is good, and necessary, but not enough. Fegan’s exclusive focus is to meet the immediate and ongoing needs of the child, face to face, expertly, for as long as healing takes; working holistically to break the generational cycles of abuse and trauma.
Parenting – Effective parenting is the best solution to the increasing mental health issues of our children and young people. Fegans’
experienced parent support workers offer practical advice and guidance to help families build positive relationships and thrive.
