One Night, One Event – Shine a Light of Hope


Focus Ireland are calling on companies all over Ireland to be involved in a national campaign to help end homelessness. Companies are asked to join other companies (big and small) and sleep-out, on the 21st of October, in solidarity with those who are currently experiencing homelessness.

Focus Ireland are asking you and your colleagues to grab your sleeping bags and bed down for one night at work – in the car park, in the garden, on the roof, in the lobby.

Shockingly 1 in 3 now experiencing homelessness is a child and the situation is getting worse all the time. There are now 2100 children living in emergency accommodation in Ireland. Homelessness is a frightening and shocking experience for anyone, and for a child even a short period of being out of home can have a long term and far reaching impact on their life.

Supporting this initiative will help Focus Ireland to prevent homelessness, support people on the brink of homelessness and make a real and lasting difference to those individuals, families and children currently living in emergency accommodation. Your support will have an impact and change a life.

Take part and stand in solidarity with families and individuals experiencing homelessness and raise vital funds so that Focus Ireland can help them find and keep a safe and secure home this coming winter.
