Lets Get Talking

Let’s Get Talking

Here for whatever is on your mind.

Let’s Get Talking is a non-profit Counselling & Psychotherapy Service providing accessible, professional, non-set fee therapy across Ireland. Each of their service users is treated according to their needs and not what they can afford to pay.

With a focus on early intervention Let’s Get Talking support adults and children (over 10 years of age) in relation to a wide range of issues ranging from depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, addiction, trauma, bullying, eating disorders, parenting issues, and family breakdown support. 

We were thrilled that our funding has helped Let’s Get Talking to engage in services that are beneficial to so many people who have suffered isolation, loneliness and poor mental health conditions during lockdown as a result of the pandemic.

“As a result of Community Finance Ireland’s loan, our organisation is in a stable financial position and ready to move to the next stage of our strategy to further provide mental health services to the community. 

Since COVID-19 we have seen a significant increase in referrals from people who have never engaged in the past with mental health services, which further highlights the need for early intervention services as provided by Let’s Get Talking.

Having the support from Community Finance Ireland ensured we could act immediately ensuring we remained accessible to clients by providing online counselling & psychotherapy since March 2020”

Irish Association for the Deaf

Irish Association for the Deaf, t/a Chime

Promoting the welfare of deaf people and their families in all aspects of life.

The Irish Association for the Deaf are dedicated to developing and providing social services and supports to deaf and hard of hearing people and their families. Encouraging others to provide services fully accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people and their families. Striving to make public and private sector organisations, and society at large, more deaf-aware.

We are delighted that as a result of our funding that the Irish Association of the Deaf has been able to undertake a revamp of their resource centres across the country. These had become dated, but more importantly, required substantial investment to incorporate new state of the art audiology booths.

“In 2018, Chime, the National Charity for Deafness & Hearing Loss undertook a major rebranding exercise which involved rebranding and refurbishing all of our locations to reflect our new identity.

We approached Community Finance Ireland to provide the finance for this project and found them to be an excellent partner. They have been easy to deal with, with a great combination of being both supportive and professional.

They have a great understanding of the charity environment.

We simply could not have completed our rebranding project without them.”
