We rely on funding from the Irish Government’s Emigrant Support Programme, the Irish Episcopal Council for Emigrants, religious congregations, businesses and individuals to continue helping the vulnerable groups of people we work with, which include older Irish people, Irish prisoners and Irish Travellers. We’re also raising money for our general outreach to Irish people of all ages.

Or hold a fundraising event
Maybe someone you know has experienced some of the problems we help to tackle through our projects. Or, perhaps you hold one of our causes close to your heart for another reason. Whatever that may be, holding a fundraising event for something you’re passionate about is a great way to pay it forward.
To raise funds you can:
- hold a cake bake sale where you work
- set up a page on Just Giving for a marathon, long walk, or some other activity you may be participating in
- hold an event of particular interest to the Irish community such as a tea party or a film day
- organise a health awareness event
- hold a games and drinks night with a raffle
There are plenty of ideas beyond this list, feel free to get in touch if you would like to fundraise for one of our causes. We’d be happy to send you a t-shirt or two, some newsletters and a poster.
It starts with you!
