Tiglin was set up to provide a service at the frontline – where people are homeless and trapped in addiction and poverty, have lost their sense of self worth, and can’t see a way out of the cycle.
The achievements of Tiglin, its methods and its culture, inspired us at mac. Our relationship with the charity began when we provided stripped out materials from our jobs to help rebuild the residential centre in Wicklow. This is a key element of the ‘closed loop’ cycle for materials and forms part of mac’s sustainable building policy. As we developed a more in-depth knowledge of Tiglin’s work, we were moved to use our own resources to generate awareness and funds to help them achieve their goals.
