Working together to create awareness, promote solutions and tackle the issue head on.

IGNITION helped to create HomelessAware back in 2014, and since then we've been happy to provide pro-bono access to services such as branding, video, photo, social media and more! This initiative is one that is headed by IGNITION Director for Communities Paul McCusker. Paul is a key campaigner for Homeless People and devotes a lot of time to supporting those forced to present as Homeless daily.

We've been all too happy to get involved with a number of projects including a Homeless Aware Christmas Campaign, a Homeless Aware Residential, and several Homeless sleep outs. The organisation also engages with young people - facilitating outreach programmes, awareness sessions and food drives etc.

 

Watch the 'Looking Forward' stage of the 2016 Homeless Aware Residential showcase below.

From September - December 2016, we worked alongside our sibling organisation Homeless, where we were asked to facilitate a short residential around personal reflection for a group of men who were currently homeless, and recovering from addictions. The residential is one that will definitely go down in our highlights! From start to finish the men were second-to-none and how they each expressed themselves, their challenges and the goals they set for the future are something everybody should take as inspiration!
