Our Values, Our Work, Our People

COPE Galway is a charity that has been providing social services in Galway since the 1970s. Our homeless services offer people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness a range of residential and non-residential supports. Our team works tirelessly to find individualised creative solutions. Ours is a learning organisation where we seek to innovate in line with evidence based best practise. We embrace strengths based approaches, harm reduction, trauma informed care and rights based service provision.

Our Vision is a community where every person is valued, cared for, and supported at every stage of life. We work to achieve this by providing essential supports for people at challenging times in their lives, and by advocating for systemic change to remove the root causes of inequity and disadvantage that constrain the wellbeing and development of individuals, families and communities.

Our Mission is to make a difference by empowering people, creating change and strengthening communities. We understand, respect and respond to the needs of our clients who are always at the forefront of our work.

Our Team is supported by regular support and supervision and access to our Employee Assistance Programme. Our people receive a wide variety of on-the-job training, including Trauma Informed Care, First Aid, MAPA (Management of Actual and Potential Aggression), Overdose Response and Naloxone Administration, Values Workshops and Diversity Workshops.

Benefits for Employees include a pension scheme and a supplemental training fund to which individuals can apply annually to assist them in their studies and their continuous professional development. Working on our front-line can act as a springboard for a range of exciting career opportunities with COPE Galway both within our homeless services and our wider organisation, including Domestic Abuse Services, Older People’s Services and other organisational posts.
