Fundraising

While we do receive some financial support from the Health Service Executive the Home Care Team is very much dependent on voluntary contributions to ensure it can continue to provide the best possible standards of care to patients in the Carlow and Kilkenny area.

All voluntary funding raised received goes directly towards funding the salaries of the nursing staff.

If you would like to run a fundraiser in aid of the Home Care Team, register your event with us via the enquiry form on the contact page. If your event is approved, we’ll publicise it on our website and you can use the fundraising letter below. Please do not make any announcements or publicise the event until we give approval to your event.
