School Resources

We provide a number of innovative resources aimed at both primary and secondary school students and teachers.

Primary School Resource

Focus Ireland’s education resource for primary schools is aimed at teaching students the reasons people become homeless.

The innovative resource “No Place Like Home” is the first of its kind on the national curriculum directly aimed at children in 5th and 6th class. “No Place Like Home” was developed by the Curriculum Development Unit at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick – who are the leading experts on curriculum development for this age group – in full collaboration with Focus Ireland. The resource aims to gain students interest by using a variety of mediums including multimedia, art, drama, English and geography. Children are also given the chance to discuss homelessness and the issues people who are homeless may face, with the aim of breaking down any negative stereotypes some of them may have around the subject.

Secondary School Resource

Focus Ireland believes that education plays a key role in the prevention of homelessness and in increasing public awareness of the different issues associated with homelessness.
