From listening to the needs of our clients’ through their stories and analysing current and previous research, we have found that Diaspora (emigrants) are very unlikely to make use of counselling services in their adopted country of residence. Those who attempt to engage report barriers experienced with culturally unaware counsellors making the counselling process more difficult among other aspects.

Examples of these stories that are reflected in decades of multi-cultural counselling research are available here: Research links; for more on this topic please see ourIdentified Needpage.

With the assistance of the Department of Foreign Affairs and the support of the GAA and An Post, Helplink Support Services launched our free online counselling service on September 10th 2016; initially for the Irish in Australia and now for Irish residents in Canada.

In order for us to bring this free service to more countries where our Citizens are living, Cabhrú needs more sponsorship/funding from; individuals who are interested in helping in this area, from organisations that support the Irish abroad and from Irish owned companies at home and abroad. 

Cabhrú Linn – we need sponsors who care about the Irish people abroad!
