ON­GO­ING POL­ICY RE­VIEW

Over the past few weeks we have in­formed you of some changes in our ser­vice in terms of poli­cies and pro­ce­dures. As part of this process, we are now re­view­ing & up­dat­ing all our in­house poli­cies & pro­ce­dures. This will help to en­sure we are com­pli­ant with up-to-date guide­lines, reg­u­la­tions and leg­is­la­tion. Re­views will take place ev­ery 3 years there­after.

VOL­UN­TEERS FOR STREET COL­LEC­TIONS

Our ser­vice is also look­ing for vol­un­teers for Street Col­lec­tions that will be tak­ing place in July & Septem­ber. Th­ese col­lec­tions are a vi­tal way for our ser­vice to raise funds for our Drop in Cen­tre in Tralee and ser­vice user sup­ports.

Vol­un­teers are re­quired for the fol­low­ing dates: Fri­day 20th of July (Tralee). Fri­day 14th of Septem­ber (Castleis­land).

If you are avail­able to vol­un­teer, please con­tact Therese or Noreen in our of­fice. We ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port we re­ceive from vol­un­teers.
