St Vincent De Paul

Mission

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a direct service non-profit organisation whose work primarily involves person-to-person contact with people who have a variety of needs. In addition to direct assistance, we try to promote self-sufficiency, enabling people to help themselves. Any assistance offered by the Society is given in a non-judgemental spirit of compassion, based on the need of the individual or family.

While we act as a short-term safety net for those who fall outside the care of the Welfare State or need emergency financial support, we try to embrace those who are marginalised by helping them to rekindle their self-respect and sense of worth. Our Mission is also to rectify the causes of poverty which perpetuate the problems faced by those we work with.

Family Mediation Service ( A State run service)

The Family Mediation Service is a state run service staffed by professionally trained and accredited mediators. It was set up in 1986 and now operates under the auspices of the statutory Family Support Agency. There are 16 offices located around the country.

The Family Mediation Service is a professional, confidential service which enables couples who have decided to separate, or who have already separated, to negotiate their own separation agreement. This is done with the help of a trained mediator, without resorting to adjudication through the courts. Couples are offered a way of negotiating separation agreements which deal with such matters as maintenance, the division of property and custody of, and access to, their children with the help of a neutral third party.

The service is free and is available to married and non-married couples.

It is not marriage counselling nor a legal advice centre.

Samaritans

Mission

Samaritans are available 24 hours a day to provide confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide.

We are not a religious or a political organisation. We don't make judgments and we don't offer advice. Instead, we believe in the value of having time and space to explore difficult feelings. We also believe that being listened to in confidence, and accepted without prejudice, can alleviate despair and suicidal feelings.

Dublin Samaritans was the first branch to be set up in the Republic of Ireland, and has been open since 1970. We work from accessible premises in the centre of Dublin 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
