TFCML is fully committed to supporting its local community in Guernsey and has made donations to the following organisations:
Headway Guernsey supports over 50 islanders, and their families, who are living with the long-term effects of a brain injury. The charity provides a wide range of services that bring people together in a supportive and positive environment, as well as running a helpline offering information and advice and providing the opportunity to talk to others who have been through similar experiences.
Dyslexia Day Care
The Dyslexia Day Centre is a Guernsey-based charity organisation offering tuition, assessments, support and advice to anyone affected by dyslexia. Since the Centre’s inception in 1987, the centre has helped over 2,000 children. Its contribution to the community was recognised when it received the Queen’s Award in 2011.
Young People Guernsey
YPG is a local charity recently established to provide an information, advice and counselling centre in St Peter Port aimed at young people aged 11-16 and working in partnership with Barnardo’s in the UK.
Criminal Justice Alcohol Service
The service is a partnership between the Guernsey Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council and the Probation Service, and is funded by the Drug and Alcohol Strategy. The service was established to reduce the negative impact alcohol can have on the community, families and individuals. The donation from TFCML will help finance a full-time employee for this valuable service.
Help a Guernsey Child
Help a Guernsey Child was established in January 2001 with the aim of raising funds for deserving children in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The charity actively seeks to assist disadvantaged local children, young people and youth organisations, as well as meeting some specific individual needs.
Les Bourgs Hospice
Les Bourgs Hospice was founded in 1990 to offer a home-from-home which could provide the highest levels of compassionate and professional care to patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses, as well as their loved ones. All Bailiwick residents are able to come to the hospice for residential, respite and day care and there is no charge. The hospice has no guaranteed income and is entirely dependent on donations.
