Shine A Light

11 October 2024

Join us for Shine A Light 2024, proudly supported by Bord Gáis Energy. For one night, schools, companies, communities, and people all over Ireland will sleep out against homelessness.

Take part alone, or as part of a group, with your friends, family, school, or colleagues to give up your bed to raise funds and make a real difference for children, families, and individuals experiencing homelessness in Ireland.

The Big Busk

12th April 2024

The Big Busk for Focus Ireland 2024 with TodayFM was a resounding success!

We were blown away by the demonstration of talent, generosity, and solidarity witnessed nationwide. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the buskers, volunteers, donors, and everyone involved on the day. Each contribution played a vital role in the fight against homelessness.

About Focus Ireland

Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland.

We are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong.

Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential, and wrong because it can be prevented and solved; allowing it to continue undermining society.

We need to challenge our society to think and act differently.

We are committed to challenging everything about homelessness: the causes, systemic failures, people's perceptions and how it is tackled.
