Will you give one night to change a lifetime?

Shine A Light Night 2020 is calling on people all over the country to sleep out for one night to raise vital funds and ‘Shine a Light’ on homelessness.

Focus Ireland and Bord Gáis Energy are proud to partner on Shine A Light Night and are urging every individual, family and business across the country to join them and give one night, to shine a light on homelessness on Friday 16 October and raise vital funds for people experiencing homelessness.

As a result of the Covid-19 impact on communities across Ireland, people experiencing homelessness are more vulnerable than ever before, currently 8,702 people are without a home in Ireland and among them are 1,120 families living in Emergency Accommodation.

Will you give just one night to help them?

You can take part from your own garden or home, it couldn't be easier to get involved this year and make a real difference.

The night helps raise vital funds for Focus Ireland, to allow them to continue their important work in preventing homelessness and creating long-term solutions to the issue.

Your support means Focus Ireland can move families out of homelessness and into their own secure homes and together Bord Gáis Energy and Focus Ireland are aiming to raise €1.3 million this year to alleviate the unforeseen pressures that this year has given people vulnerable to homelessness.
