Support us at work

Your company could have a huge impact on our work to provide crisis intervention and free professional counselling services throughout Ireland to bereaved parents and family members who have suddenly lost a child up to 18 years. Companies often choose to support FirstLight when a staff member or client has been affected by the sudden loss of a child. This can be a wonderful tribute and demonstration of support.

We work with companies who believe in our values and want to make a difference in their community. By partnering with FirstLight, you will be aligning with an incredibly well-loved and inspiring charity, and our cause will motivate and unite your staff.

There are a number of different ways you and your organisation can work with FirstLight. Interested? Get in touch with our Fundraising Department on 01-8732711 or email

Charity of the Year Partnerships

Having a ‘Charity of the Year’ helps your company stand out as a responsible and ethical choice for consumers. More companies are choosing to commit to supporting charities long-term, rather than ad hoc, as they see the benefits of embedding the partnership within the culture of the company. Staff and customers develop a passion for the cause as they see the life-changing difference their fundraising efforts make over the long term.

Staff Fundraising

Staff Fundraising is a fantastic way to motivate your employees and strengthen your brand, all while making a vital contribution to our work. Whether you’re a keen runner, expert baker or just looking for a great team-building activity – we have something for everyone! Plus, as a small charity, we provide a personal touch to every Employee Fundraising Partnership.
