Our national charity partner 2019-21

St Francis Hospice

Since 1989 the staff and volunteers of St Francis Hospice have provided specialist palliative care to the people of north Dublin city and county. Based on a Christian philosophy, the service treats each person with dignity, respect and compassion irrespective of their cultural or religious background.

While we may never wish to avail of the services of St Francis Hospice, for those of us that might need to or indeed have family members that might need to it is a brilliant service and we at Aviva are proud to have St Francis Hospice as our national charity partner for the next two years.

Temple Street Children’s Hospital

We will almost all be familiar with the pioneering work that Temple Street Children’s hospital do for our children and young people. Child-centred, compassionate and progressive, they act with respect, integrity and excellence to provide a most fantastic service for the children of Ireland.

We know that children are our future and that their health is of paramount importance. We look forward to supporting Temple Street over the next two years, to help them continue the great work that they do.

Our staff in Cork have already a well-established relationship with Shine Centre for Autism and we are excited to work together again.
