Working with Focus Ireland to meet the challenge together

The prevention of family homelessness in Ireland is an area where we believe we can make a real difference and through our partnership with Focus Ireland, we have been working on making this a reality since 2015.  Our partnership has already directly supported over 7,000 families experiencing homelessness or at risk of losing their home.

We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Focus Ireland until 2025 and have pledged a further €2 million to help tackle family homelessness. This brings our total commitment to €4.4 million since we joined forces with Focus Ireland in 2015.

During the next phase of our partnership, we will assist a further 10,000 families through advice, information and support programmes, and directly prevent 1,000 families from ever entering homelessness.

Bord Gáis Energy will also sponsor Focus Ireland’s new initiative called the Lived Experience Ambassador Programme (LEAP) which will enable people who have lived experience of homelessness to share their stories and help raise awareness of the issue.  Another key element of the partnership is the Bord Gáis Energy Empowerment Fund, which enables vulnerable children to have normal moments of childhood from basic items like new school uniforms to family outings or more critical interventions such as medical assessments.

Everyone at Bord Gáis Energy and Focus Ireland is supportive of this partnership and immense work has been done to make the partnership a success. We believe that every child needs a safe place they can call home, and we will work together to do everything we can to help make that happen.
