The organisers of Night & Day Festival say the event is partnering with Roscommon Safe Link as part of its inaugural event this year.
Roscommon Safe Link is a non-profit organisation which offers information, support, and counselling to women and men who have experience domestic violence.
The Roscommon Safe Link dragonfly symbol features on the festival’s website and redirects to the charity’s own site.
Representatives from Roscommon Safe Link will be on site during Night & Day Festival and festival-goers will be able to donate to the organisation and learn more about their work.
Commenting on the partnership, Roscommon Safe Link coordinator Anne Carey said: “We are delighted to be involved with Night & Day Festival, which we hope will further increase our profile and raise awareness of our service among members of the public.
“We also hope that festival-goers will support our fundraising appeal on the weekend of September 24th and 25th. Members of Roscommon Safe Link will be in attendance at this year’s festival to provide further information”.
Announcing the partnership, Night & Day Head of Communications, Craig Hughes, said: “We are really pleased to be able to highlight the really important work being done by Roscommon Safe Link and to let those impacted by domestic violence know what services are available to them.
“Roscommon Safe Link provides an essential service to people who have endured very traumatic experiences and we hope we can play our part in making more people aware of their services.
“We will be highlighting the issue of domestic and gender-based violence during our political discussions as part of the festival programme”.
