WHO WE ARE

History of Society

Our Mission

This society is probably the oldest charitable society in Cork city. It was founded in 1853 and has its roots in the terrible squalor due to recurring epidemic diseases, severe food shortages and widespread misery and deprivation that were rampant during the famine years of late 1840s and early 1850s.

 

Since then, of course social conditions have improved to the extent that the founding members of the society could scarcely have envisaged. Although the growth of the welfare state has brought about great improvements in modern conditions, people in our community can very often become marginalized due to unexpected circumstances. Families often find themselves under severe financial pressure due to unemployment, illness, bereavement, harmful addiction, separation, unequal access to opportunities and other forms of discrimination.

 

The task of The Sick Poor Society is to reach out to families who are in these difficult circumstances and to provide them with material and other assistance. This work is undertaken on a voluntary basis and consequently, all monies are used solely for the benefit of needy families. Administration charges of the Society are less than 1% per annum.

Areas Covered

We assist families and individuals from Bishopstown through Cork City and as far as Mahon. This covers  the Southern Parish or South of the River.

 

New Members

New members are urgently required,both male & female.All our fundraising comes from door to door collections.   Please note that we do NOT receive any grants and all the work is voluntary. No one receiving any remuneration. less than 1% goes on administration.
