How ReachOut Ireland is funded
Originally supported in 2009 by major philanthropic income, ReachOut Ireland is now funded through a mix of philanthropic funding (The Atlantic Philanthropies), state income (HSE, National Office for Suicide Prevention), and general fundraising.
The Atlantic Philanthropies will complete their work in Ireland in 2017 and are committed to supporting ReachOut Ireland to end 2016.
All income that we receive goes specifically towards delivery our core online services. These are:
- Online training programme ReachOut 101
- Development of the Good Practice Guidelines in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention
- Youth and community engagement activity
- Annual research and evaluation of our services.
Our accounts are filed annually with the Companies Registration Office. The most recent filed accounts are for the calendar year 2014. Accounts for 2015 will be filed before the end of September 2016.
2014 Income breakdown
*In 2014, we also received funding from the Young and Well Co Operative Research Centre in Melbourne Australia for two distinct research projects, “Bridging the Digital Disconnect” and “Recharge” a young men’s sleep app project.
How funds are spent
As we are primarily an online service, the majority of our expenditure relates to staff costs – 61% in 2014.
We have a team comprising five full-time employees and one part-time.
