The BTC programme is for adults whose childhood experiences of habitual familial alcohol abuse, addiction or other dysfunctional behaviours and relationships have hindered their ability to live their adult lives to the full.

 

December 2013
In light of the recent negative publicity in the Media regarding Irish Charities, the Hanly Centre would like to make the following statement:

 

"The Hanly Centre is not, nor ever has been core-funded by the HSE. It is not, nor ever has been in receipt of core funding from any government department. The Hanly Centre relies on its own fund raising activities to continue to provide services for its clients. It does receive money from the National Lottery through the Charitable Lotteries Compensation Fund which compensates charities for loss of earnings due to the introduction of the National Lottery. This compensation fund is directly related to the gross sales of lottery scratch cards only. The current government have decided to stop this compensation fund entirely by 2016. Already the Hanly Centre's compensation has been reduced by 60%. The situation is critical. Without either core funding or compensation the services which we provide for 1000s of persons every year hang in the balance. Thank you for your continuing support."

 


The Hanly Centre provides programmes, counselling and workshops for persons who:

 

have been affected by alcohol-related problems in their lives.

have current difficulties in living their lives to their full potential as a direct result of their childhood experiences, where discord and destructive addictions and/or relationships were the norm.

 

The Hanly Centre also provides school programmes and workshops.

 

Break the Cycle Level One - What Our Clients Say

Below is feedback from our clients who completed the most recent Level One Module.


Male

An entertaining and informative presentation of life-enhancing learning, looking forward to the experiential learning!

 

Female

The Level One Breaking the Cycle course really helped me to become more aware of my emotions, my actions and reactions. I have been going through a difficult time in my life. The course has been a way for me to feel like I was doing something to care for my mental health. Each week I look forward to it and each week I felt empowered leaving it. The hand outs game me an opportunity to stay focused throughout the week. I really look forward to Level 2. I am growing as a person.

 

Male

Great course, very helpful, well worth doing.

 

Male

I find this to be a brilliant course, very helpful and fulfilling.

Blog comment on the decision to increase the price of alcohol - a key issue in alcohol misuse?

Alcohol and alcohol-related harm has been in the news a lot lately. Minister Shorthall wishes to raise the cost of alcohol to hinder its widespread use, particularly among teenagers whose binge drinking is causing much alarm. Youth drinking, of course, is not a new problem in Irish society.
