Launched in 2018 by iCare, the aim of the campaign is to provide gifts to children, teenagers, single parents, and families who are at risk of homelessness or living in temporary accommodation and who, due to their circumstances are often overlooked at Christmas time. The campaign is run closely with Homecare Independent Living (HCIL), Homecare Support Services and Homecare Housing LTD, who work closely with vulnerable teenagers, adults, and families daily.
In 2020, with public and corporate support our iCare at Christmas campaign was hugely successful, and we delivered over 1,500 gifts (toys, personal care items, clothes, etc) to youth supported living, family shelters, Women’s aid, youth centres, first housing, sure starts, local primary schools, across Northern Ireland and in the greater Dublin area.
We want 2021 to be our best year YET!!! The iCare team are committed to making iCare at Christmas a real success this year, spreading kindness without limits and making a small difference to the lives of those most vulnerable in our communities. We hope you will continue to support us, as you’ve always done – we are SO thankful to you!!
