Focus Ireland need the support of the Irish business community now more than ever. We strive to embed 3 to 5 year partnerships. Long term partnerships are known to offer the best possible outcomes for both organisations as they grow to learn each other’s business well, and can help achieve joint goals. We work closely with our partners’ goals, creating a bespoke partnership by choosing a project/service that requires funding and fits with your company values.
By partnering with us, fundraising, volunteering, or by participating in our events, your company can help Focus Ireland raise much needed funds for people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes.
On Friday 12th October our annual Shine a Light Business Leaders sleep-out will take place in Dublin’s Christchurch Cathedral and Munster’s Cork City Gaol.
Companies big and small will be bedding down for one night at work – in the car park, in the garden, on the roof, in the lobby – to show solidarity with families experiencing homelessness and to raise vital funds for Focus Ireland.
Focus Ireland works with companies and employees across Ireland to make an impact on people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Bord Gáis Energy has committed €1.2 million to Focus Ireland to help end family homelessness. The support is targeted to two specific areas within Focus Ireland’s range of services. These are; providing support to families directly at risk of homelessness and prevention of family homelessness through raising awareness of the contributing factors.
We are delighted to be named as one of Applegreen’s new Charity Partners for 2018/19 and a beneficiary of their Charitable Fund alongside Debra Ireland and The Youth Foundation. Every time you make a shop and fuel or a shop-only purchase, in Applegreen in Ireland, the company donates 1c to the Fund on your behalf. The funds raised over the next two years from Applegreen, customers, and staff activities will help our work towards ending the crisis in youth homelessness.
