Heroes Aid is the only charity in Ireland run by healthcare workers, for healthcare workers. Its philosophy is simple: Let’s care for those who care for others.
We understand that a lot of workplaces nowadays offer employees a ‘wellness programme’, but we like to think that we’ve made something a little bit special. Heroes Aid prides itself on being the only charity that’s designed by healthcare workers, for healthcare workers. We know, for instance, that some people will be reassured by our 24/7 dedicated helpline, while others will want to take part in 1-to-1 counselling sessions with trained professionals. No two people are the same, so our services are as individual as they are. Participants can choose from self-help courses covering sleep, stress and self-esteem to everything in between.
