In 2010 Homecare Independent Living established the iCare Charity. iCare improves and changes peoples lives, one iCare Wish at a time. Our mission is to ‘Use the power of people to create a better world’. Everything we do is designed to lift hearts, do good and make a difference. You’ll find us wherever kindness can make a difference.
iCare is passionate about creating real change within our society by offering opportunities for people to become better citizens through training and volunteering and in turn deliver ‘acts of kindness’ which make a positive difference to individuals, families and communities in either a practical or personal way.
Every festive season since 2010, Santa has taken up residence in our quaint Gatelodge in picturesque Milford, Co.Armagh. He loves it here and the children who travel to meet him love it too. It is the ultimate feel good festive treat because it also does good too.
Pull on your trainers and take your pick from either a 10k or 5k timed chipped run, or a 3k family walk. Our purple run is growing in popularity each year and is now a firm favourite in the local sporting calendar. Last year over 500 runners did their bit in the beautiful Gosford Forest Park, Co.Armagh.
Every member of staff at Homecare Independent Living donates an hour of their working day each year for free. In return, the company contributes their hourly rate to iCare, with a total of £15,000 raised since 2015.
