Great News - office Opening Hours

Great News

 

As was advised earlier this year, the necessity on us as an organisation to break even by the end of the year meant that Right of Place took the decision to reduce staffing hours in the final quarter of 2012.

This was a difficult, but necessary decision and not only affected our staff, but more importantly those who access our services. This was crucial to us continuing into the longer term with a better platform in which to build on our existing supports.

However due to the tireless work (hundreds of Voluntary hours) by our staff and the many Survivors who offered their expertise, support and encouragement this reduction of hours has been addressed and we now face into 2013 with a brighter, more stable future in our continued quest to provide the best supports to Survivors of institutional Child Abuse and their families.

it is important for us to also note the continued support and expertise that the HSE, St. Stephens Green Trust and the Department of Education offers us and we are grateful for this. To our staff who worked under immeasurable stress, with limited hours and most importantly the Survivors who helped us and believed in what we are doing and trying to create. It is amazing the support that comes about when you most need it. Whether that has come in the form of monetary assistance, or offering your time and expertise it is important to us that our clients are involved at all levels of the organisation.

Additional Offices

 

We are acutely aware of the calls to open additional offices and hire additional staff. We are constantly evaluating/applying and seeking assistance in support from individuals, groups and companies to assist us in these endeavours. With the budget we have at present (bearing in mind it is over 50% less then 24 months ago) we have managed to open more offices and have more frontline staff then ever before. We are aware of the success of our endeavours and the understanding and research that the types of support we offer are best administered in the local community's Survivors access them from so we are doing everything in our power to open additional offices.

Should you have any questions on this, or can offer support please feel free to get in touch by e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or writing to any of your local offices, by getting their address by clicking here.

 

Upgrading the offices

 

We are also aware of what Survivors are requesting, relative to the existing offices such as a drop in centre etc and we want to assure you we are looking at the possibility of developing these. We want you to know that your concerns and ideas will always be listened to and currently an internal informal feasability study will be carried out at each of our centres to see if they can be implemented. Any developments on this and all Survivors will be kept informed through our website, Local media outlets and to our members through our Newsletters.

 

Finally it gives us all great pleasure to hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you have a prosperous New Year.

Thank you for your continued understanding, support, encouragement and assistance in 2012.

It is only again to remind you should you ever need assistance, information or would like to offer your help please do not hesitate to contact us.
