The Rise Foundation
Supporting families with loved ones in addiction
We are currently working on a very exciting project to develop a dedicated addiction awareness and education centre for family members and community workers on beautiful Rathlin Island, off the North Antrim coast. The island is a haven of peace and tranquillity, where people feel safe to share and begin their own recovery. Have a read of this personal testimonial from a family member who participated on our Rathlin residential Family Programme.
The Commissioner of Irish Lights has kindly agreed to give us a development lease for two houses at Rathlin’s remote East Lighthouse. Both properties are in need of renovation and redevelopment.
There is a team of Project Managers and Architects working on the project and we are now at the stage where detailed plans have been drafted and are being finalised for planning permission.
We need to raise at least €1.5 million to fund our Rathlin Island Project. It is a lot of money, especially in today’s economic climate, so we will be working extra hard over the coming months to get both corporate and public donations.
Our fundraising activity will culminate in a “RISE Week” of activities which we are currently planning for April 2011.
The Rathlin Island project is an integral part of our vision. Its completion and subsequent success is essential for The RISE Foundation’s future growth and sustainability.
We plan to keep this page updated with the various stages of the project as it progresses over the coming months, so please revisit to see how it is coming along.
