We challenge and improve healthcare inequalities for minority communities in Ireland.
Cairde provides a frontline Health Information and Advocacy Service from our Dublin and Balbriggan centres.
Our commitment is to bring about social change in favour of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in society.
Cairde regularly networks with statutory and non-statutory organisations to highlight the experience ethnic minorities have of health services at a policy level.
I am proud to serve as a Mental Health Advocacy & Support Volunteer for Ethnic & Minorities at Cairde. With Cairde, my journey has spanned almost 20 years. It all began when I accessed advocacy support as a client, successfully addressing my Mental Health Services & Human Rights complaint.
