Focus Ireland’s Sponsor A Star campaign has been running for 18 years and Singlepoint is proud to be one of the companies supporting them this Holiday Season.
A lot has been changing in the Dublin landscape in the past few years: new buildings, new shops, new restaurants. Here in the Dublin Docklands, new buildings are popping up, with Dublin Landings fast becoming the latest dynamic urban quarter – a great symbol of Ireland’s economic recovery. Indeed, Ireland is the EU’s star performer. Not everyone, however, is enjoying the party.
The number of homeless families in Ireland has increased by 354% since September 2014. In the last three years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of families becoming homeless, and in September 2019, there were 1,756 families accessing emergency accommodation (1294 in the Dublin region). This includes 3,873 children. The problem has been a constant one in Ireland.
Focus Ireland are relentlessly working at helping families, young people and children at risk or affected by homelessness, and this Holiday Season again, they are asking businesses to help fight homelessness. In 2018, they supported more than 500 families out of homelessness. So this year, Singlepoint is proud to chip in and to be sponsoring a Focus Ireland Star and contribute in a small way in helping raise funds for this much needed and prevalent cause. With the support of companies and businesses this Holiday Season, they can reach more families, children and young people and help them move into a home of their own.
If like us, you believe that homelessness is a problem that can be solved together, join the Sponsor a Star campaign. By sponsoring a star on Focus Ireland’s Christmas Tree on Grafton Street, you are facilitating Focus Ireland to support even more people who are homeless.
