Peter McVerry Trust are delighted to be working with our 2018 corporate partners:
Just Eat Partnership (2016 & 2017)
JUST EAT dedicated a speaking slot to a representative from Peter McVerry Trust at Electric Picnic to discuss the issue of youth homelessness and the work of the charity in addition to using JUST EAT’s far-reaching social media channels to spread the message. JUST EAT also supported the work of Peter McVerry Trust beyond Electric Picnic by sponsoring a number of events at the charity’s Youth Café.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Peter McVerry Trust and supporting them to highlight the important work that they do. Our partnership is officially commencing at this year’s Electric Picnic Festival at the JUST EAT Retreat. We’re looking forward to working with the team at Peter McVerry Trust to specifically drive awareness of the Housing First initiative through a variety of online and offline communication channels throughout the year.”
Amanda Roche Kelly, Managing Director of JUST EAT Ireland
Dublin Chamber of Commerce (2015)
Peter McVerry Trust was delighted to have been chosen as Dublin Chamber of Commerce’s charity partner for 2015. This partnership saw Peter McVerry Trust engage with members of the chamber throughout the year. Companies and their employees took part in a wide range of Peter McVerry Trust fundraising events during 2015. The Chamber also organised fundraisers to benefit the work of Peter McVerry Trust including a cycle from San Sebastian to Barcelona as well as donating funds from the annual gala dinner and Christmas lunch to Peter McVerry Trust.
Funds raised by Dublin Chamber of Commerce supported Peter McVerry Trust’s work to provide safe and supportive spaces to people sleeping rough in the City, and increase capacity of the charity’s Housing First approach.
Saint Gobain Ireland (2014)
“We were delighted to be able to assist the Peter McVerry Trust on this project, given the deepening crisis in social housing in Ireland. This project will give 6 people homes and we hope that their new home brings them security and pride. Part of our corporate and social responsibility is to support our local communities, and supporting a building project for the Peter McVerry Trust is a great match in that regard.”
Brian Dolan, Managing Director of Saint-Gobain Ireland
Peter McVerry Trust began working with Saint Gobain Ireland in 2014. The partnership focused on the renovation of a block of six ex-local authority flats in Dublin 8. Saint-Gobain Ireland secured funding of €100,000 to help Peter McVerry Trust renovate these units and make them available to people in homeless services.
Check out Moving On, a short film capturing the impact that the Saint Gobain Ireland and Peter McVerry Trust project had on the lives of two younger people experiencing homelessness who were finally able to move on to their own homes.
