CÉARD É CATU?

Is aontas é CATU Ireland do phobail agus do thionóntaí. Glacann sin san áireamh tionóntaithe príobháideacha agus tionóntaithe de chuid na gcomhairlí, daoine le morgáistí, daoine i láithreacha cónaithe éigeandála agus i gcuinsí baolacha. Tá CATU ann le tú féin agus do chomrádaithe cumainn a neartú le dul i ngleic le fadhbanna roinnte. Is eagraíocht muid atá ag troid ar mhaithe le sochair a bhaint amach sna tithe, pobail agus saoil d’ár mbaill ar fad. Léigh ar aghaidh
