We provide financial aid to support our Little Blue Heroes subject to available funding. Application for support must meet our beneficiary criteria.
We grant the wish of the children we support (under our criteria) to become Honorary Gardaí and provide Garda themed distraction toys and children’s events (e.g. Garda HQ Tour) for our Little Blue Heroes.
Haven For Heroes
Where possible and subject to availability we arrange short breaks for Little Blue Hero families who would not normally get a chance to take a family holiday. This includes every year bringing 4 families to the Aran Islands with thanks to our supporters at IPA Galway, Aran Islands Ferries & Aran Islands Hotel.
On the approval of Hospital Management and with the consent of parents our volunteers check in when possible on any of our Little Blue Heroes who may being staying in hospital for long periods of time for moral support and a friendly chat.
Yule Fuel Campaign
Each Christmas we run a ‘Yule Fuel’ campaign to help fuel the journeys of families of children with serious illness who have hospital appointments over the festive season. Being on the road for families means needing fuel for the car, last minute food shopping for essentials, credit for phones and buying fuel for the home. Normally the only 24 hour service available to buy these things are garages along their route to and from hospital. We help to reduce some of these costs to these families who must travel our national roads by providing Gift Cards for garages to those in need.
