Funding Support

For groups and organisations working in areas of suicide, self harm & mental health

3Ts uses its expertise and fundraising abilities to identify and provide much needed funding support to other agencies & organisations working at the coalface in suicide prevention, mental health & related areas. Individual grants range from €3,000 up to €110,000 to any one organisation in any given year.

In recent years, the 1Life Helpline was the main beneficiary of 3Ts funding, made possible in part by the SPAR Charity of the Year initiative.  1Life has now ceased operations, with callers directed to the Samaritans. However, in addition to funding 1Life during this period, smaller grants were made to selected organisations.

Parents Plus Collaboration

From 2014 for a period of 3 years, the primary beneficiary of 3Ts funding will be the Parents Plus Charity.  3Ts have partnered with Parents Plus to roll out the Parents Plus & Working Things Out programmes for parents & teenagers.  Read more here.
