Aoibhneas needs to continually fundraise for additional resources, as we are part funded by the Child and Family Agency and Dublin City Council.
Since 2009 Aoibhneas has experienced a 24.5 % cut to core funding. Despite these cuts Aoibhneas has had to respond to the increased numbers of women and children seeking refuge and outreach support. Aoibhneas require core funding to provide a service geared to meeting the expressed needs of families who are in crisis.
Unfortunately, some families who come to Aoibhneas often have to leave their worldly possessions behind and for many of the children it’s often following a traumatic incident. Upon a families arrival to the refuge we will provide them with emergency supplies to get them through their first couple of days. Therefore we are in need of a constant supply of clothes, food and toiletries.
Through the generosity of donors we have been able to organise annual events in the refuge like our Summer Project and our Christmas Party for the families that have stayed in the refuge during the year.
Any donation is always welcome no matter how small. If you would like to support us in any way please find all the details about how you can make a donation along with our contact details:Information on tax relief for Corporate Donations
