The CMN volunteer support contacts are key to fulfilling our first and most important aim; supporting those affected by CMN.

All our support contacts are either, a parent of a child affected by CMN or, affected by CMN themselves.

The role of a  Support Contact:

  • Provide a listening ear
  • To signpost you to charity information
  • To support you in your fundraising efforts
  • To connect you with other families local to you
  • To host a regional gathering

Don’t feel alone – get in touch with your local support contact.

Caroline lives in Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow with her husband Jason and their 4 children. Caroline’s daughter Lauren, who is 15 years old, has CMN. Caroline and her family have been actively supported by Caring Matters Now (UK) since Lauren was four years old.
Caroline understands first-hand the value of the support provided by the charity along with the long-term benefits for Lauren herself. Caroline is the support contact for the Republic of Ireland and is very much looking forward to developing the work of the charity in Ireland.
