Guys, can someone please tell me if you can see the various breakdowns of services in the OP.

There should be the following headings but they're not appearing for me, yet when I got to edit the post, they're there. I r confused.

Financial/homelessness/food services
Depression/Mental Health/Suicide
Addiction Services
Domestic Violence
LGBT services

The Galway Peoples' Resource Centre: I just joined this place last December on a CE scheme as a Equality Rights officer, its a centre where help is given to the long term employed to get back into work and education and info for settled refugees and those on Direct Provision. It is situated in the centre of Galway city.

For those struggling with debt, and we all know the mental agony that comes with it.... These guys are so worth talking to. I can't begin to say how much one short meeting has done for me...

I know it says keep it to a minimum but I'd like to say to anyone out there in need of help do not let your pride get in your way. Many years ago I fell on hard times, really hard times in fact. I only had enough cash to pay my mortgage, feed my kids and get to and from work. Even at that point I wasn't breaking even.... My hours of work had been reduced and I was effectively starving to stay afloat.

As much as I didn't want to I ended up calling the VdeP, it was so hard to do because I'm a proud guy and never wanted 'handouts'.

The guys in VdeP are saints. Literally saints. They do not judge, they genuinely want to help you out. Even with the limited resources they have they will do their utmost for you.

Alot of people go through hard times. As soon as I got back on my feet after two months of their support I never looked back. Now I make it my business to donate every month with a little extra at xmas.

I will always buy toys for the giving tree which are generally in every office and just knowing that I'm giving back that feeling to someone in need that I got is an amazing feeling. I know things are tight for everyone especially this time of year but if you can spare a fiver, or even buy a small teddy, book whatever I can tell you from experience it restores the faith in humanity for the person receiving it.

Sorry for the long winded note....
