We’re here to protect and support
Irish Chaplaincy is one of the oldest Irish welfare charities in the UK. For six decades we have been providing practical support to the Irish community in Britain.,
We are an independent social action charity offering culturally sensitive support for Irish immigrants and other people of Irish heritage throughout England and Wales. Since 1957 we have been at the forefront of providing life affirming services for some of the most vulnerable and marginalised Irish people in Britain.
Rooted in the tradition of Catholic Social Teaching, the charitable objects of the Irish Chaplaincy are:
To relieve poverty and advance health amongst people of all faiths and none, and in particular those of Irish nationality or descent, and to provide advocacy on their behalf with statutory authorities and other organisations.
And to develop the capacity of socially and economically disadvantaged Irish persons in such a way that they are better able to identify and meet their needs and participate more fully in society.
