AsIAm and COVID-19

The Coronavirus has brought new challenges to everyone in Irish society and AsIAm is no different. For the safety of our staff and our community, all staff members are now working at home but are working full time and can still be reached through info@asiam.ie. During the next few weeks, we will be radically changing our planned content to adapt to this new situation. We will be putting in place online resources to help with the massive changes in routine, services and social situations during this situation. Check the bottom of the page for a sample of these resources.

The summer months are extremely important for AsIAm from a fundraising perspective. Over the past few months we had planned and put in place numerous events – all of which are being cancelled, therefore donating to us will become crucial so that we can provide our wide range of services into the future.

Please click on the donate button on this page or through our social media and help make a difference.
