The Galway Lions Club

The School Leavers Access Programme was fortunate to receive support from the Galway Lions Club. The gift from the Club provided a stipend for students in the School Leavers Access Programme who are facing financial hardship.

For many students having enough money for the bus to and from University makes a big difference, for others they struggle to pay for food and or accommodation is the difference between remaining in the programme of dropping out. The gift meant that students could apply for support based on their individual needs and remain in the Access Programme.
