Having been to watch one of the Strictly for CAUSE shows in the past I thought I would give it a go.

This year is Christmas themed and we are doing the Quickstep to Chris Rea's Driving Home for Christmas.

We are delighted to be doing this to raise funds and awareness for CAUSE who provide help, support and training to family, friends and partners who are supporting loved ones with mental health issues.

Originally founded by two parents caring for their son and daughter ill with psychosis, CAUSE has gradually developed into a peer-led charity, run by carers for carers, working across Northern Ireland.

For almost 25 years, Cause has grown organically as a local charity from their first support group in Belfast to working regionally. They are a peer-led organisation and all of our frontline team and senior management have direct personal experience as a mental health carer.  

There is no other charity like CAUSE here!  Please support!
