Charity Campaign - Jigsaw

 

YFG have partnered with Jigsaw, a national youth mental health organisation, as part of our Charity Campaign.  

About Jigsaw

Jigsaw is the National Centre for Youth Mental Health in Ireland with the mission to bring about significant change in how Ireland thinks about, responds to and supports young people's mental health.

They do this by funding ground-breaking, collaborative, high-impact youth mental health research, providing the most up-to-date information about youth mental health, delivering a range of services to improve the lives of young people living with mental health issues and those around them, and by influencing change and raising awareness of youth mental health on a national level.
We represent an innovative approach to promoting and supporting youth mental health, in line with best practices of clinical, financial and operational governance.

1. Through Research we deepen our understanding of young people’s lives.
2. Through Engagement we stimulate and contribute to the national conversation on youth mental health.
3. Through our Services we provide free, confidential, mental health supports for young people aged 12-25 through our
network of 13 regional hubs.

YFG Charity Fundraising

Throughout 2017 we encourage branches and Regional Councils to host fundraising events for Jigsaw.  Even small contributions count, every amount raised will go towards the final fundraising target.  By choosing Jigsaw as our partner, Young Fine Gael will be able to make a tangible impact to children and young people who are suffering from mental health difficulties across Ireland.

YFG members are also welcome to join Jigsaws National Fundraising efforts to help in the overall effort.  This includes the Giro D'Jigsaw Cycle around Ireland from Friday 29th of September to Sunday 1st of October.  €50 to enter with minimum €750 sponsorship to be raised by each participant.  Details of other Jigsaws events can be found here: Jigsaw Events.
