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
“YOU HAVE NEVER REALLY LIVED UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN NEVER REPAY YOU”
On behalf of the Management, Staff, Board of Directors and especially the families who use our service throughout the year, we would like to thank everyone that donated to Aoibhneas over the Christmas period.
We are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors who answer the call to give, time and time again. The donations received helped to make life a little easier for the families who reside here with us and that gift of sharing whatever you have, no matter how big or small, is immeasurable.
Your selfless generosity has enabled us, once again, to invite families back to the Refuge for a special Christmas party, which includes a visit to Santa’s Grotto. You have helped make Christmas here a memorable one for the Women and Children in need of our service.
Once again please accept our grateful thanks, on behalf of our clients here, and we take this opportunity to wish you, your family and your friends a very peaceful and happy 2016.
You know how comforting it feels to get into new pyjamas after a bath. Please help someone else feel that way too this Christmas!
We are asking you, your family and your friends to kindly donate pyjamas for a woman or child that may need to access our refuge centre.
