Strictly for CAUSE← Back
Monday, 11th December 2017
Dane Ward of Bladon & Co has joined this year’s Strictly for CAUSE line-up. Dancing a breath taking Tango along with his partner Emma, Dane hopes to dazzle the audience and along with the rest of the Strictly gang, break last year’s target of raising over £10,000. Bladon&Co are delighted to be working alongside this wonderful charity supporting all aspects of mental health. We wish Dane the best of luck for the 22nd November!
A bit about CAUSE
Established in 1995, CAUSE is a unique peer-led charity, run by carers for carers, working across Northern Ireland. Our team of highly trained Carer Advocates who deliver our frontline services, senior management and Board members have direct personal experience of caring for a loved one with a serious mental illness. We have all had our own carer’s journey and more than anyone, we understand the types of practical and emotional issues families, partners and friends can face.
We provides a range of bespoke services to carers supporting loved ones with serious mental illness such as severe depression, personality disorder, bi-polar disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia. Services we offer include the following:
• One-to-one support and advocacy for carers
• A network of carer support groups across NI
• Training for carers and professionals
• A confidential Helpline for carers
• Social opportunities where carers can meet other carers
• Ways to engage with carers in policy and service development
In addition to our general advocacy support service, we also provide dedicated and specialist services for carers with loved ones in the medium secure unit Shannon Clinic and carers of a loved one with personality disorder.
