About Community Connect
Community Connect is a volunteer-run national initiative to support pregnant women and new parents in a practical and tangible way.
Many new parents in Ireland, and women experiencing unexpected pregnancies, struggle with the nagging question: how will I provide for my baby? Community Connect exists to help answer this question with practical, material supports so that mums and parents feel more secure and supported in bringing their baby into the world.
Community Connect initially has six volunteer-run ‘hubs’ across the country, where people can donate baby items and parents in need can access them. These hubs are located in Dublin (North and South), Cork, Galway, Athlone & Limerick. We also have volunteers in many other parts of the country, who can access items from our hubs and assist families in need in those locations.
We are not yet a registered charity, but we hope to work towards charitable status.
We rely totally on donations to provide our services to those in need.
