Fréa – Sustainability Lead

Fréa is a community interest company bringing together three independent charities in the North of England: Irish Community Care Manchester, Irish Community Care (based in Liverpool and delivering services in North West) and Leeds Irish Health & Homes.

Fréa is from the Irish word *fréamh*, meaning ‘root’, and reflects how as charities we are anchored and strengthened by our shared heritage, which, through careful cultivation and ambitious growth, enables us to flourish. The work of the charities focuses on improving the health and well-being of vulnerable members of the Irish communities across the Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester metropolitan districts. Over the past 12 months collectively the charities have supported 3500 individuals.

Fréa aims to combine the fundraising activities of each of the charities in order to maximise the financial sustainability of each organisation to ensure the continuation of care, culture and community within our communities.
