More About Us

SCCUL Sanctuary

In 2013 SCCUL Enterprises CLG set up the SCCUL Sanctuary to provide a safe space for people facing very difficult life challenges. The Sanctuary runs tailored therapeutic retreat days, at a nominal rate, for community groups and members of the public who are facing a crisis in their lives or in need of healing.

 

The SCCUL Sanctuary funds the therapeutic retreat days through:

  1. Regular fundraising activities such as Choir Factor.
  2. Making the space available for private hire on days when it is not in use for therapeutic retreat events.
More About Us

BCNC Centre

Ballinfoile Castlegar Neighbour Centre strives to be a hub for the local community. Here in the Centre, we enable clubs and organisations, through our state of the art facilities, to provide essential services for the local community.

 

Through the operation of a two-tier social inclusion model, as a not for profit, BCNC uses income generated from commercial interactions to offset the cost associated with the provision of facilities, at a discounted rate, to local community groups.
