April 20th – 22nd. Host a Get Together. Together we’ll prevent family homelessness.

April 20th - 22nd. What will you choose to do for your Great Get Together?

Why take part?

Get involved in something wonderful. We believe that everyone has a right to a place they can call home and you are doing something about it! The money you raise will fund vital work to ensure more families get to have a safe and secure home of their own. You will also help to raise awareness of the deepening crisis to challenge homelessness and change lives.

Bord Gáis Energy is kindly supporting Ireland’s Great Together as part of its ongoing partnership with Focus Ireland. The partnership began three years ago and has recently been extended to 2021. To date the partnership has already supported over 5,182 families in need.

How your contribution helps:

  • €50 can help provide school supplies, books and a uniform for a child living in emergency accommodation.
  • €100 will help to provide the practical, short term supplies a family experiencing homelessness urgently needs.
  • €250 can help provide one-to-one specialized support for a child traumatised by their experience of homelessness.
  • €750 can help provide urgent supports for a family on the brink of crisis.
  • €1500 can provide essential resources to help prevent more families from becoming homeless.
