Information for those in need of a little extra help *READ OP BEFORE POSTING*

There are a lot of folk out there who are struggling a little more than they should be for various reasons. There is help out there for families who are worried about christmas, worried about the rent, or just worried about where their next meal is coming from.

We would like to put together a list of resources for those in need. It needs to be a community effort in order to try and make it as nationally beneficial as possible so we would be very grateful if you could post details of known resources and their location, below.

I will update the OP with the details as they are posted.

This is not a general discussion thread. Please keep chat to a minimum.

Can personally vouch for the Capuchin Day Centre on Bow St (beside the Jameson Distillery) at the back of St Kevin's .

They provide free meals, no questions asked, from around midday until 2pm, 365 days a year.

So if you're in any way embarrassed (not that you should be) about needing help, it's a good place to at least make sure you get a good meal, as it's just like a canteen setting and you can come and go as you please.

Christmas can be a difficult time for many. Pieta House offer free counselling for those contemplating suicide or other self-harm.

I'd like to add Aware.ie and GROW to this list- both very good facilities that deal with the struggles of mental health issues.
