Families Depend on Your Support!

Your support can have a huge impact in alleviating the stress and anxiety families across the country face on their childhood cancer journey. 95% of all money raised for Hand in Hand goes directly towards service costs for the families.

As of 2019, the SSNO is covering a significant percentage of salary costs for both full-time staff members at Hand in Hand. The Government of Ireland funds the Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO) through the Department of Rural and Community Development.

A very kind benefactor covers 100% of the charity’s rent; therefore, most Hand in Hand’s overheads are covered. This means you can rest assured that your donations are going directly towards helping families affected by childhood cancer.
