About us:


In 1972, One Family began life as Cherish. In that year, a group of single mothers, led by Maura O’Dea Richards, set about reaching others in the same situation. Mary Robinson, then a Senator, became our first President. Founder member Colette O’Neill suggested Cherish as a name for the group, taken from the 1916 Proclamation which declared that Ireland would ‘cherish all of the children of the nation equally’.

Unfortunately in 1972, this was not the case. Single pregnant women were often thrown out of their homes, lost their jobs and were rejected by their communities. It was extremely difficult for them to keep and raise their children themselves. Cherish was set up to provide such women and children with a voice, empowering women to help themselves and their families.

As an organisation, Cherish not only provided services to single parents and their children, but also campaigned for change. While many changes were brought about, two of the most significant were the introduction of the unmarried mother’s allowance and the abolition of the status of illegitimacy.

Today we continue to work to affect positive change and achieve equality and social inclusion for all one-parent families in Ireland. We look forward to many more years of achievement for our leading and radical organisation.
