In 2012, I established and became the Founder and acting CEO of the Sarah Bird Foundation; an independent Irish charity created to partner with organisations, charities and NGOs, both in Ireland and abroad, through which to offer, deliver and leverage our expertise and experience in trauma healing, for greatest impact and results.
The vision of the Sarah Bird Foundation was to empower individuals and communities to transform the stress, trauma and suffering resulting from conflict and natural disaster, into lives of resilience and fulfilment, accompanied by dignity and respect.
The Foundation worked on a number of projects, both in Ireland and internationally, delivering expertise and training. Some are presented on the associated Projects pages under the Humanitarian menu.
The Foundation closed on my return to the UK in 2018.
