Cope Foundation - Flowers of Hope


This year, Cope Foundation’s Flowers of Hope campaign takes place from 1st - 14th April. Funds raised through Flowers of Hope will be used to develop and progress Cope’s work in assistive technology. Assistive technology is any technological intervention that can enable a person to do something – from everyday tasks to those ‘never-seemed-possible achievements’.

Assistive technology has the potential to really change a person’s quality of life and gain independence. Cope Foundation wants to be able to provide more assistive technology solutions for people so that they really can live ‘Your Life, Your Way’.

You can show your support through many events across Cork city and county. Further details of dates, locations and times below:
