CHARITIES

PropertyRaceDay-h

The Property Race Day Ireland is a hugely enjoyable day for all those present, enabling the great and the good of the Irish property industry to meet and help to support our charitable causes along the way.

The chosen charities for 2022:

The ISPCC

Childhood is short. We believe every child and young person should have someone to turn to for support when they need it. We’re here for every child any time of the day or night, to listen and help them cope better with whatever’s on their mind.

Because of your support over 2,500 Children will have someone on the end of the phone to talk to. ChildLine by ISPCC is always here to listen, for any child who feels they have nowhere else to turn, whatever’s on their mind, any time of day or night.

ABOUT THE CHARITY:

ISPCC is a national charity dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and young people; they are at the heart of everything we do. We provide the Childline suite of services.

Our child-centered services, programmes and supports are focused on strengthening resilience and developing coping competencies. By listening to, supporting and empowering children and young people, we strive to ensure they are better equipped to face life’s ups and downs and reach their full potential. We speak out and advocate for meaningful change that will enhance their lives today and leave a legacy of improved childhood experiences for future generations of children and young people.

We are here to listen to children and young people, to empower them, to strengthen their resilience and to enable them to live their best possible lives. Our goal is that every child and young person who wants to connect with us can do so, when and where they need to. Childline is a key service choice for children and young people where they can access the support that’s right for them in the way they feel most comfortable.

We provide a range of independent and unique services to children and families that are both preventative and empowering in nature.

Our Services include:

CHILDINE LISTENING SERVICE

Our Childline Listening Service is an active listening, non-directive service for all children and young people in Ireland up to and including those aged 18 years of age. It is available to children and young people online, by phone and by text 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

CHILDLINE THERAPEUTIC SUPPORT SERVICE

Our Childline Therapeutic Support Service (CTSS) works on an in-depth one-to-one basis with children, young people and their families over a period of up to six months.

 

CHILDLINE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Smart Moves Programme; This programme is designed to give young people skills to increase their overall resilience as they make the transition from primary school to secondary school.
Parenting and Community Supports;
The Parenting Hub on the ISPCC website at ISPCC.ie publishes content in relation to parenting.

Webinars
Childline Outreach Programme;
Our outreach programme brings information about Childline’s services to schools and community groups throughout Ireland.
Support Line, provides a listening service, offering information, advice and emotional support to members of the public who contact us on any issue in relation to children and young people’s welfare.

 

Missing Children’s Hotline:

The ISPCC runs Ireland’s National Missing Children’s Hotline which takes calls from missing children, family members of missing children and members of the public. The National Missing Children’s Hotline offers emotional support and guidance and is available 24 hours a day at freephone 116 000.

 

Digital Guided Self-Care Programmes (Space from Anxiety):

Our Space from Anxiety programmes, developed by Silver Cloud, are aimed at reducing anxiety for children and young people. They also provide support for parents and carers to help manage their own anxiety while supporting their anxious child or teenager.

These guided self-care programmes are based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), incorporate mindfulness practices and are specifically designed to assist in managing anxiety.

A trained member of the Childline team guides and supports each participant through their programme confidentially.

How you are making a difference for children in Ireland

You are letting a child know that there is always someone there for them, whenever they need to talk. Childline’s support can make a lasting difference in the life of a child or young person. However, Childline’s services rely hugely on public support, donations, and events such as the Property Race Day. Your support will ensure that we can provide our vital Childline Listening Service 24 hours a day.
On behalf of our staff, volunteers and the children who contact us, thank you.

Focus Ireland

Focus Ireland

Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. We are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong. Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential. Wrong because it can be prevented and solved but is allowed to continue, thereby undermining our society. Since 1985, Focus Ireland has been the leader in tackling the root causes of homelessness and we have a history of delivering innovative, long-term solutions.

Focus Ireland’s work is driven by two key pillars:

Prevention: Preventative strategies are a cost-effective and socially progressive approach to breaking the cycle of homelessness. Being proactive stops our customers from:

  • Losing their homes.
  • Experiencing the trauma that so often strikes our customers when they become homeless.

Rapid Rehousing & Sustained Exits: Providing wrap-around services and support to our customers is the most effective way to ensure our customers can sustain their new homes and leave homelessness behind them, permanently.

These pillars are underpinned by an ambitious property acquisition plan. Focus Ireland has over 90 services nationwide, tailored to the individual needs of our customers. We have offices located in Dublin, Kildare, Cork, Limerick, Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, Sligo, and Carlow, and provide outreach services to all other parts of the country.

Past Support:

To date, Focus Ireland has gratefully received €33,000 in funding support from The Property Race Day. To put this support into context, these funds could support 130 family and child cases in our Family Homeless Action Team for one month each.

The main goal of the Family Homeless Action Team team is to minimise the negative impact of homelessness on families and children by providing case management support and assistance in sourcing suitable housing. The team’s child support workers work directly on a one-to-one basis with children, many of whom require additional support in coming to terms with what is happening in their lives. Focus Ireland’s research has shown that a family who receives expert case management is four times more likely to exit homelessness than those who don’t have that support.

The Future:

Over the next 5 years, we are prioritising three key initiatives around:

  • Families
  • Children
  • Young People

These initiatives will have the greatest positive impact on individuals, families, and children who are at risk of or already experiencing, homelessness today. These programs are designed to:

  • Prevent more families from becoming homeless
  • Support those experiencing homelessness
  • Minimising the harm during homelessness

 

Over the next 5 years, Focus Ireland aims to achieve:

  • 5,000 households supported to move out of homelessness
  • 3,000 households prevented from becoming homeless
  • 1,152 additional households having a home through Focus Housing Association

To meet our objectives, we must secure additional funding. The vital initiatives will require an investment of €30 million over five years. We cannot embark on this alone. Our success will depend upon the support, dedication, and financial support of many individuals, companies, and organisations.

Focus Ireland is very grateful to be working with Property Race Day to help end homelessness in Ireland.
