Solas Moyle

This is a charity in Ballycastle on the north-eastern coast of Northern Ireland. It offers one-to-one support, counselling and group-work with the aim of improving people’s mental health and physical and emotional well-being. The goal is to help people to tackle the root causes of their problems, as well as improving confidence and self-esteem. The charity had been set up as a response to the rising suicide rate in the area.

Since inception, Solas Moyle had been run on a voluntary basis and had arrived at a critical point – to adapt further to meet the need. In June 2015 the Foundation contributed £1,200 towards the costs of a consultant who will assist the charity in identifying what is needed to move forward, to strengthen the organisation, and increase its capacity.
