Lifeline Inishowen to submit final funding petition in an attempt not to close

first_imgManagement at Lifeline Inishowen, a domestic violence service, are set to submit a final petition for reinstating funding at Leinster House on Wednesday, June 26. The news comes as the service continues to financially struggle to keep its door, a struggle that has been ongoing over the previous nine years.Last month, the manager of Lifeline Inishowen told Donegal Daily that failure to provide funding for the centre in Carndonagh will cause further abuse and isolation for victims in north Donegal.  The centre, which helped over 46 women last year with domestic violence cases, has not been sanctioned government funding since 2011 despite the efforts of the centre over the last four years.“Nothing has changed this year despite the ratification of the Istanbul convention, which is a legal instrument that focuses on combating violence against women and domestic violence,” Mary Doherty said.“More services like Lifeline Inishowen should be welcomed and supported in rural Donegal.“I do not understand why there cannot be sufficient national level coordination with Lifeline Inishowen, particularly since the outreach was created by the local community itself,” Doherty added. The Inishowen group received only €3,200 out of the €650,000 Tusla funding granted in 2018, strictly for child counselling services. “Lifeline Inishowen has been of great benefit to the patients of this practice over the last number of years. Our local community supports and depends upon it and we look forward to its continued presence in Inishowen,” said Dr Ken Devlin.“Lifeline Inishowen is an essential service which is at the frontline providing services to vulnerable women and children.“There have been significant improvements for the families involved. When children are in need of therapeutic services they need to be seen as soon as possible.”Officials from the government insist the Donegal Women’s Centre in Letterkenny is suitable to cover the entire county, leaving those in Inishowen as far as 65km from the centre. “The counselling service in Lifeline (Inishowen)has responded immediately and offered a service which meets the needs of each individual child and family,” highlights social worker, Annette Duffy.“The service needs to continue in Inishowen given that Inishowen is very rural and families do not have transport to Letterkenny where most therapeutic services are placed.“Should Lifeline cease to exist, I fear that children and families in Inishowen will lose a valuable service which will have a detrimental effect on their future development”Lifeline Inishowen to submit final funding petition in an attempt not to close was last modified: June 22nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:InishowenLifeline Inishowenlast_img read more

What To Get Your Sweetie for Valentines Day? How About iOS 4.3

first_imgTags:#Apple#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting According to rumors, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 4.3, will be released on February 14th. At 10 a.m. PST to be precise. Unlike the cheap box of chocolates that leaves you guessing whether the next bite brings nougat or that strawberry cream filling, we’ve already figured out much of what we can expect for iOS 4.3. So, if you find yourself pining and alone on everyone’s favorite holiday, just remember that you have a date…with iOS 4.3. According to Apple-centric blog MacStories, current beta versions of iOS 4.3 will include AirPlay, bug fixes and code maintenance, as well as a series of APIs to bring subscriptions to apps.ReadWriteWeb’s Sarah Perez looked at the features expected for the next version of iOS and came up with this list: Wi-Fi Hotspot: As we already knew, the personal hotspot capabilities are present for GSM devices, although it’s up to individual carriers to implement this setting. It’s doubtful that AT&T will be one of them. Verizon, however, is. AirPlay support for third-party native and Web applications: Previously in iOS 4.2, AirPlay, the feature that lets you stream video from your mobile device to an Apple TV or other third-party AirPlay-enabled hardware, was only available to the built-in Apple apps. With 4.3, any third party app can offer this functionality, too. A redesigned FaceTime icon: A minor change, but it looks good. Support for fullscreen iAd banners on iPad: A new iAd format which Apple says is “easy to implement,” allows its users to collect 60% of the revenue generated. Configurable switch for the iPad, as mentioned above, the toggle can be used as a mute button or orientation lock HTTP Live Streaming Statistics: This allows developers to track their video streams’ popularity and measure their performance. MobileCrunch warns not to pin all of your hopes and dreams on an iOS 4.3 release on February 14th exactly, but says that “just about all of the rumors pin the launch sometimes around the middle of February.” The real question, however, is how long until iOS 4.3 is jailbroken? 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts mike melansonlast_img read more
