New Business: Samaritans Ireland, Cluid Housing Association and the MGA
DHR Communications is delighted to announce that we’ll be working with Samaritans Ireland over the course of 2010, developing an advocacy strategy for the organisation and advising it on its advocacy work. Samaritans provides 24-hour emotional support to anyone experiencing distress, despair or suicidal thought. It was established in Ireland in 1962, and now has 20 branches across the island of Ireland, with almost 2,000 active volunteers.
In addition to Samaritans Ireland, we’ve also recently been chosen by Cluid Housing Association to provide public relations support for an event the Association is organising this March. Further details will follow shortly…
Finally, we’re back working with the Myasthenia Gravis Association (MGA), helping to promote Ronnie Whelan’s ‘Rocky Road to Dublin’ Challenge in aid of the Association. DHR Communications previously worked with the MGA in 2007 and 2008, on a nationwide campaign aimed at raising awareness of Myasthenia Gravis, a muscle-weakening disease.
