The Property Panel in Aid of Children in Crisis
Staff, contractors, family and friends of The Property Panel are coming together in 2011 to raise money for Irelands children living in crisis. The recipients of our fundraising work tirelessly to address the main causes of crisis in children, being domestic violence, homelessness and serious illness.
Your donation will be used to benefit the lives of children in the following ways:
Homelessness – Focus Ireland aims to advance the right of people-out-of-home to live in a place they call home through quality services, research, and advocacy. Our fundraising is be used to support the continuation of the Extension Day Service – a drop in day service where young homeless people can come in to take a shower, get something to eat, do their laundry and get advice and information. These young people tend to be very vulnerable and the staff from Focus Ireland spend time building relationships with them, helping them to access services and to move out of homelessness into a place of their own.
Domestic Violence – Sonas Housing Association provides supported housing to women and their children who are homeless due to domestic violence as well as other forms of gender-based violence. Our fundraising will be used by the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children to create a ‘Bright Space’ – a warm, enriching special play and learn environment for children within a Sonas Housing womans refuge in Dublin.
Serious Illness – The Childrens Medical and Research Foundations mission is to support research into the cause, treatment, care and prevention of childrens illnesses and disease and to actively support excellence in the care and treatment of sick children by providing supplementary equipment, facilities and assistance. Our fundraising will be used in St Peters Ward, to acquire pressure relieving mattresses to prevent and treat pressure ulcers for new born babies with limited mobility. Funds will also be used for the creation of murals in the ward.
