The Network of Community Cancer Support Centres (CCSC) across the state, including Purple House in Wicklow are calling for more core funding to provide services and support. The Wheel which represents 35,000 charities are launching their proposals to address issues about the sector for Budget 2025.

Wicklow Sinn Fein TD John Brady has backed the CCSC in their proposal as he stated:

"The Community Cancer Support Services, including our own Purple House here in Bray provide a vital service to cancer patients and their families and carers. The sheer volume of work carried out by Purple House is indicative of its critical role in the lives of cancer patients and their families."

The Director of Operations of Purple House Conor O'Leary has called on the Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly to increase their core funding to provide the care and services for cancer patients throughout Wicklow.
