Servisource were proud to donate €10,000 to Pieta, the Suicide and Self-Harm Crisis Centre this Christmas.
In 2022, Pieta ran a Candle of Hope Christmas Appeal this year, in which Servisource part of the CPL Group were delighted to support. This appeal ensures that any donations and gifts will help provide a qualified Pieta therapist to answer the call, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This remarkable charity specialises in providing free, professional one-to-one therapeutic services by fully qualified staff, for people who are experiencing suicidal thoughts, people who have attempted suicide and people who are engaging in self-harm.
In 2021 alone, Pieta delivered over 48,000 hours of intervention and bereavement counselling and received almost 100,000 crisis support calls and texts. This was achieved through their 24-hour freephone helpline while directly supporting over 600 households devastated by the loss of a loved one by suicide.
Servisource, with over 20 years’ experience across several specialists’ sectors, provides care and support services both in Ireland and the UK in addition to their strong recruitment divisions. Servisource has the right people with the right skills and knowledge in the right place, combined with a track record of deploying its full might of resources to alleviate the challenges the health service faces, including mental health services.
Servisource realise that protecting mental health is a priority especially during the winter months. Allied Admissions is a specialised division of Servisource, who offer support to mental health services on behalf of the HSE. Myhomecare, another division of Servisource, offer support and companionship from the comfort of your home which is vital during the winter months.
Servisource strongly believe in giving back to the local and national communities. In 2022, Servisource as part of the CPL Group, donated just under €50,000 to Ukraine Red Cross to help support those in need. Servisource has also supported our local sporting organizations and many different causes in previous years. We are looking forward to helping where we can in 2023.
Lisa Harber from Pieta House said “Pieta is so thankful for the kind donation from Servisource. This donation will help the team at Pieta to sustain our free, lifesaving services and will help those in distress move to a place of hope and light during these most challenging times. This wonderful donation is helping us continue providing our service which offers one to one counselling for people who are suicidal, people engaging in self-harming behaviors and people who are bereaved by suicide, and for this we are extremely grateful.”
Declan Murphy CEO of Servisource added “Servisource recognise the importance of taking care of one another through whatever challenges may arise, whether in work or at home. The outstanding work that Pieta does throughout the country is admirable and we want to thank them for improving the mental health situation in Ireland. Here at Servisource, we are always devising new ways in which we can help and support charities and give a little back.”
