Business Leaders - Will you give one night to change a lifetime?

The homeless crisis in Ireland has reached historic proportions, with 1,239 families including 2,546 children living in emergency homeless accommodation in Ireland.

The event

On Friday 13th October our annual Shine a Light Business Leaders sleep-out will take place in Dublin’s Christchurch Cathedral and Munster’s Cork City Gaol.

Shine a Light Business Leaders sleep-out

Calls on the business community to send a message of solidarity to people experiencing homelessness in Ireland, and give one night to change a lifetime by sleeping-out on October 13th and raising funds to support the vital work of Focus Ireland.

Will you help to end homelessness in Ireland?

At Focus Ireland we work tirelessly to end homelessness; every day we move a family out of homelessness and into a home of their own.

More than 300 Business leaders have raised €2 MILLION. Join them in 2017.

To take part in Focus Ireland’s Shine a Light Night 2017, we ask you to raise or donate €5000 and sleep-out for one night.

Focus Ireland has always enjoyed overwhelming support from the business community and this is why we need your help:

  • Over 2546 children are currently living in emergency homeless accommodation.
  • More than half of those children are under 8 years old.
  • On average more than 60 families a month become homeless in Ireland.

With the support of the business community, every day Focus Ireland moves a family out of homelessness into a secure home of their own and this is what you enable us to do by supporting our services for children, families, and individuals.
