Cura closes due to accreditation needs
Cura, the Catholic Church’s support service for women facing crisis pregnancies, will close today.
Cura said the decision was due to declining demand for its services and the new regulatory environment for counselling, initiated last month by the government.
Cura provided a national helpline, as well as counselling and information services. The Irish Bishops’ Conference confirmed the move and praised its “pro-life contribution” over its decades of work, while also expressing regret that Cura had been compelled to close due to the decrease in demand for its services and the accreditation requirements.
