Supporting Irish people in England and Wales since 1957

Support for prisoners image


We visit prisoners, offering an advice and information service to them and their families and encourage fairer treatment in prisons.

Support for travellers image


Advocating for the human rights of Travellers and help to improve their situation in the criminal justice system.

Support for seniors image


We provide emotional, spiritual and practical support, as well as advocacy services for seniors.


There are many more people who would benefit from our services if we had the resources. We’d be grateful for any help you can offer either by becoming a volunteer or by donating.
