What we do

‘We strive for an Ireland without poverty where everyone can meet their basic needs, access opportunities and live with dignity. Using the experience of our members on the ground we turn concern into action and advocate for more just social and economic policies.

Our focus is on a practical approach to dealing with poverty, alleviating its effects on individuals and families through working primarily in person-to-person contact by a unique system of family visitation and seeking to achieve social justice and equality of opportunity for all citizens.’

If you or someone you know is struggling, they can ask for help online.
