Be a part of our Education Access work this year

When: Sunday 2nd June 2019
Where: Dublin, Ireland

Last year, we were able to financially support 53 people to access further education through our Education Fund and with your help we can build on that this year.

From now until September we will be raising funds for our Education Fund which supports people in the asylum process onto further education. Our main event will be in June and with support from the Communities Integration Fund we will be joined by over 60 women from Mayo, Portlaoise and Monaghan this year to make some noise about education access for people in the asylum process.

We invite you to join us for the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

National Housing Demonstration: Tell Government #HomesForAll

When: 1st December at 2pm
Where: Garden of Remembrance

After the massive success of the #RaiseTheRoof rally on October 3rd when 12,000 people took to the streets outside Dáil Éireann, the National Homeless and Housing Coalition have called a national demonstration on the housing crisis for December 1st at 2pm.

Huge momentum is building with grass roots campaigners, front line service providers and advocates calling for action on the housing crisis. We need a mass mobilisation like we saw for the water charges to put pressure on the government.

We will be on the streets on December 1st to tell the government that we will not be ignored – after October 3rd we got a landlords budget and an abject failure to act on the Dail motion that called for radical action on the crisis, including an accelerated programme of public housing on public land, an additional 1bn euro funding in the budget for housing, an end to evictions, a reduction in rents and to hold a referendum to enshrine the right to a home into the constitution.
