RESPECT has fundraised over the years to introduce improvements to various aspects of the lives of the Daughters of Charity service users. Some of the funds raised were used to obtain matching funds from Government to be able to provide up-to-date community style living quarters for residents, other smaller projects include the provision of transport services between facilities.
