Fórsa officials recently made a presentation to Jigsaw, the national centre for youth mental health, which is one of four mental health charities that received funds from the union’s 2018 charity cycling initiative.


The union focused on groups providing mental health supports and suicide awareness and prevention services.


Eamonn Donnelly and Dessie Robinson initially led the cycling event to IMPACT's national conferences from 2008, and the practice has carried over into the new union to raise funds for a number of charities. It has attracted donations from every branch of the union, and each event features a growing number of participating union members.
Last year the cyclists travelled from Limerick to Killarney on the opening day of Fórsa's national conference in May.


Jigsaw is committed to ensuring that no young person feels alone, isolated and disconnected from others around them.


Jigsaw provides vital supports to young people with their mental health by working closely with communities across Ireland, engaging in research to improve mental health services and delivering an education and training programme to build the skills and confidence of young people to support youth mental health in their community.
