Tandem Project Management Ltd. is proud to announce our 2020 CSR partnership with Focus Ireland.
Focus Ireland reports that as of November 2019, there were 10,448 people homeless in Ireland. This figure includes adults and children. The number of homeless families has increased by over 300% since November 2014 and more than one in three people in emergency accommodation is a child. These numbers do not include people who are ‘sofa surfing’, availing of domestic abuse refuges or sleeping rough.
Focus Ireland provide long term housing to people at risk of homelessness and a resettlement service to people moving out of homelessness and into a new home. They provide advice and information to identify the best available supports and options, in the first instance to avoid homelessness, but also to those recently homeless. Focus Ireland provide a youth housing and after care service to vulnerable young adults coming out of state care with no options for housing.
Stories of homelessness pervade the news, especially this time of year when temperatures plummet and people’s lives are at risk from sleeping rough. Tandem are proud to partner Focus Ireland and to play a part in stemming the tide of homelessness in Ireland.
This year Tandem will act as Business Network Ambassadors for Focus Ireland, participate in housing maintenance and remediation projects, attend events and undertake fundraising activities.
We look forward to a worthwhile and engaging partnership with Focus Ireland for 2020.
