Bereaved Children’s Awareness Campaign November 2022

Every November, the Irish Childhood Bereavement Network (ICBN) organise a series of events across Ireland to highlight bereaved children’s needs and provide a voice for them to be heard.

Children are the “hidden mourners” in our society. They feel the loss over a lifetime, and in different ways: as they grow and learn to understand the real meaning of death and loss. Every child has different needs, perspectives and understandings of what death means.

CyberSafeKids – CyberBreak event October 21st 2022

October 21st 2022 is CyberBreak! We are asking families across Ireland to ditch their devices for 24 hours. CyberBreak will take place from 5pm and run for 24 hours.

This campaign is open to families and schools as a fun, interactive way for kids, parents and teachers to reflect on how much time they spend online and to promote a healthy online and offline balance. It’s also a good chance to just take a break from the online world and ‘disconnect to reconnect’!

Families and schools can sign up on

Being LGBTQI+ in Ireland Study 2022

Belong To and Trinity College Dublin want to know what it is like to be LGBTQI+ in Ireland today. Take part in the Being LGBTQI+ in Ireland study today to share your experiences of being an LGBTQI+ person in Ireland.


In 2016, Belong To and Trinity College Dublin collaborated on The LGBTIreland Report – a ground-breaking national study into the mental health and wellbeing of the LGBTQI+ community in Ireland. Over 2,000 people responded, and the research has been used to advocate for better services, supports and policies for the LGBTQI+ community.


On the 13th of September, the Being LGBTQI+ in Ireland research was launchedThis new study will track the changes in the LGBTQI+ community since the last year. The information for TheLGBTIreland Report was collected in 2014/15, before the same-sex marriage referendum and the introduction of the Gender Recognition Act in 2015.


With this new body of research, we have the chance to see what has changed for the LGBTQI+ community since these major milestones.


This anonymous research will examine the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQI+ people in the Republic of Ireland and investigate public attitudes towards LGBTQI+ people. The survey is for LGBTQI+ people aged 14 and is anonymous and confidential
