26 November 1982 – 4 November 2018
It was a chance meeting and a chat with a young boy who was in Foster Care that played a big part in Brita’s decision to become a Social Worker in Child Protection.
She was passionate about her work and her many pastimes.
She fitted many adventures into her very happy 36 years, surrounded by lots and lots of love from her partner Martin, friends and family, and dedicated Tusla colleagues. She often repeated. ‘Im very lucky, Mam’.
It was a privilege to have her in our lives, we miss her dearly.
With ‘Brita on my shoulder’ it consoles me that the Brita Legacy can contribute to helping children in care and care leavers.
~ Triona Waters
On behalf of Brita’s mother Triona, EPIC are honoured to administer the Brita Waters Legacy Fund which will support children in care and young care leavers up to the age of 26 through the provision of education and emergency grants for the next three years.
