Collins McNicholas’ Charity Partner
Jigsaw, The National Centre for Youth Mental Health, work to ensure that no young person in Ireland feels alone, isolated or disconnected from others around them. They work closely with communities around the country to provide support to young people and their mental health, specifically those between 12-25 years of age.
Since being founded in 2008 Jigsaw has helped almost 25,000 young people with their mental health and now has 14 offices. They have built a team of passionate and creative individuals who believe in a proactive, community-based approach to making a difference. Offering a comfortable place that young people can visit for free to meet with trained mental health professionals helps prioritises their wellbeing and makes the process as easy as possible for the individual.

Collins McNicholas & Jigsaw
Collins McNicholas are committed to supporting Jigsaw and their excellent work through both fundraising and volunteering hours. We believe that their work is extremely important and would like to help in any way possible to end the stigma around mental health. Each of our offices have teamed up with their local Jigsaw centre.
As a group we will hold a number of events throughout the year with the proceeds going entirely to Jigsaw. Employees will also have the option to spend a number of working hours volunteering with Jigsaw, while some are taking part in fundraising events being organised by the charity themselves.
Keep an eye on our social media pages to learn about our fundraisers!
