Tandem Project Management Ltd. is proud to announce our 2020 CSR partnership with Focus Ireland.
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.
Covid-19 poses a significant risk to homeless people because of their circumstances, some people may also have long-term health issues, which may put them at additional risk. It is almost impossible for people to self-isolate in hostels, hubs or hotels, and Focus Ireland are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of their clients at this time.
In April 2020, Tandem participated in two fundraising events for Focus Ireland, and in doing so raised over €5,100.00 for Focus Ireland. During ‘The Next Step’ Challenge ‘Team Tandem’ ran, or walked, a total of 772.4 miles, raising €3,770.43. Of the teams that participated, Team Tandem clocked up the most miles and the highest level of fundraising. Tandem applauds the 332 Next Step participants nationwide who raised a total of €59,108.00 for Focus Ireland. Tandem’s Big Rebel Sleepout raised €1,411.08. The total funds raised during the Big Rebel Sleepout came to €57,255.00.
Going forward in 2020, Tandem will act as Business Network Ambassadors for Focus Ireland, participate in housing maintenance and remediation projects, attend events, and undertake further volunteerism and fundraising activities. Tandem is proud to partner Focus Ireland and to play a small part in stemming the tide of homelessness in Ireland.
We look forward to a worthwhile and engaging partnership with Focus Ireland for 2020.
