SAOL in the Papers

Saol gets some press from time to time, so we thought we'd remind ourselves of the times we were there

Saturday 9th March 2013 Irish Times

The article finishes by mentioning SAOL's celebrations of International women's Day:

The assistant director of a drug project in Dublin said among the most stigmatised people in Ireland today were recovering drug addicts who were mothers. Ger O'Rourke was speaking at a celebration on International Women's Day yesterday of 12 such women who have changed their lives.

The 12 recovering addicts, the majority of them mothers, were awarded Fetac qualifications in subjects including childcare, word processing and communications after completing the courses at the Saol Project in Dublin's north inner-city.

Saol supports women in drug treatment, with education, counselling, advocacy and childcare provision.
