iCare at Christmas is our dedicated campaign to provide gifts to children, teenagers and adults who are at risk of homelessness or living in temporary accommodation and who, due to their circumstance are often overlooked. It is estimated that there are 20,000 people impacted by homelessness across the island of Ireland. Christmas is an especially hard time for them. We want to make sure as many people as possible wake up with a gift on Christmas morning.
The campaign is run closely with Homecare Housing and the dedicated Support Services team in Homecare Independent Living (HCIL), who work with vulnerable teenagers, adults, and families daily.
Last year with public and corporate support we delivered over 1,000 presents to family shelters, Women’s Aid and Youth Centres across the country
