Mission Statement

Focus Ireland are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong. They work with people who need support to avoid becoming homeless and who need help to end their experience of homelessness and move into a safe and secure home. From the very beginning, their work has been rooted in deep listening to people, learning about the problems and risks they face and pointing to where the solutions lie. 

I'm fundraising for...the people in need

On Friday 13th October, I will Sleep Out Against Homelessness as part of Focus Ireland’s Shine A Light, proudly supported by Bord Gáis Energy. By sleeping out, I hope to raise awareness about homelessness and help raise vital funds to support homeless services. 

Homelessness is not just a statistic; it’s a heart-breaking reality for far too many people, families, and children who lack the basic security and comfort we can often take for granted. Some families can spend up to two years in a one-bedroom room in emergency accommodation, which has a significant impact on mental health, self-esteem, and child development.  

Focus Ireland are working hard to support those who need it most and help them on their journey out of homelessness and towards a better future. 

Please donate to my Shine A Light fundraising page and play your part in the fight to end homelessness. Every contribution makes a difference.
