  • Scope employees raised €12,500 which the company matched, bringing the total donation to €25,000
  • Amie Hynes-Fitzpatrick, CSR Lead at Scope said: “It’s great to see that the funds we have raised will provide Clinical Psychologist care for both the children and their families at ChildVision.

Scope is a family owned Irish company working within the healthcare sector for over 80years. Scope offers innovative management products for Ocular Surface Disease and Age-Related Macular Degeneration, as well as a well-established food supplement range.

As part of Scope’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the company is committed to working with ChildVision, Ireland’s only dedicated centre providing education and therapy to blind and multi-disabled children from all over Ireland, ranging in age from birth to 23 years of age.

The partnership will see Scope fundraise and donate proceeds to ChildVision on an ongoing basis. Scope employees raised €12,500 in 2019 by organising and running a charity golf tournament. Scope matched this donation, allowing the company to donate a total of €25,000 to ChildVision.

The cheque for €25,000 was presented to Child Vision Chief Executive, Brian Allen, with students and their families also present. The funds will make a significant difference to the lives of those being cared for and their families right across Ireland.

This donation will be used by ChildVision to provide Clinical Psychologist care for children and young adults whose family can avail of the service too. A Clinical Psychologist is a specialist psychologist who will identify any emotional, mental, or behavioural issues with a view to diagnosing any existing or potential issues. This care is important to children in ChildVision as it ensures each person is receiving the specific care and treatment they need.

We are very proud to be associated with Scope, they have visited the campus, seen the need and responded so generously. We look forward to a long partnership with the team who are also working every day to improve eye care.
