The Bee Sanctuary of Ireland

“Aileen helped us to source, apply for and secure funding for our social enterprise. She took the
time to really listen to our requirements, understand our business and walked us through each
step of the entire funding process. We would highly recommend talking to Aileen about funding
opportunities both big and small. A genuinely lovely person to work with.”

West Wicklow Dogs for Friends

“West Wicklow Dogs for Friends is a small charity committed to bringing pet therapy into HSE and educational based units with a reach of up to 100 service users. Thanks to the dedication and expertise of Aileen all of our funding since our inception, four years ago has come from applications made by her on our behalf. These applications can be complex and we are immensely grateful to receive assistance in the funding process. It has meant we have been able to pay for training for both volunteers and dogs, safeguarding for volunteers and further educational training for trustees in our charity – specifically in Animal Assisted Therapy. The funding has also enabled us to purchase logo embroidered uniforms and identifiable harnesses for our dogs. Each year our insurance is a major cost and without funding we would not be able to operate. Aileen not only helps us with our funding but is a valuable member of our visiting team with her trusted canine pal Ruby.

The South Kildare Beekeepers Association

“In 2020 Aileen Carter was successful in obtaining funding on behalf of the South Kildare Beekeepers Association. Funding like this is vital to the voluntary sector and especially to a small Association such as ours. The grant has allowed us to purchase a large weatherproof shed and concrete base for our new apiary site and some more beekeeping equipment. Not only has the Association gained storage space on site but it also means we can begin to teach beginner beekeepers the practical, hands-on skills of beekeeping and bee breeding whatever the weather. A shed may seem like a small thing but without one – we are at the mercy of the elements.”
