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 undermines 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.

About Today FM

For the third year in a row, Today FM is proudly supporting the Big Busk for Focus Ireland.

Today FM is Ireland’s number one radio station for 20–44-year-olds with nearly 1 million people tuning in each week.

We are delighted to partner with them to bring awareness to the pressing issue of homelessness in Ireland.

As part of The Big Busk, Today FM will be amplifying the voices of people who have either experienced homelessness themselves or who are playing an active role in the fight against homelessness.
