Our LauraLynn Partnership
Battery Recycling Powering Support
As well as benefiting the environment and recovering precious materials for reuse in manufacturing, your battery recycling efforts support the children, families and staff at LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.
Every battery recycled by WEEE Ireland goes towards a donation fund to support the vital work provided LauraLynn.
This support allows LauraLynn to deliver invaluable hospice care and emotional, social and spiritual support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice provides respite, crisis and end-of-life care to children with life-limiting conditions, and support to their families, both in hospice and in the comfort of a child’s own home.
LauraLynn, is Ireland’s only children’s hospice. Since opening in 2011, LauraLynn has cared for more than 420 children and their families, with 230 families currently availing of their care and support.
They provide a range of services including, symptom management for children; music and play therapy; psychological support; family and sibling camps; short breaks and end of life care.
Care can be availed of in the purpose-build eight-bed hospice in Leopardstown, at hospital, in the community, or in the family home, depending on the location and medical needs of the child and the family’s preference. It provides vital bereavement supports to families after they have lost a child. It also undertakes research into the relatively new area of children’s palliative care.
LauraLynn Children’s Hospice is hugely dependant on the generosity of the public and business community to fund their services. It costs more than €5 million to keep LauraLynn’s Children’s Hospice open, €4.6 million of which must be generated through fundraised income. Since opening in 2011, LauraLynn has cared for more than 420 children and their families, with 230 families currently availing of their care and support.
