Saoirse Women’s Refuge Sleepout Tallaght


Saoirse Women’s Refuge has been offering short term crisis accommodation to families fleeing domestic abuse and violence across Ireland.  The refuge has six self contained apartments that can house up to six women and their children at any one time and partnered with safe houses that can also accommodate 6 women and their children. Another part of our service is providing an outreach service for women and children in the community by supporting them in many areas including; court accompaniment, emotional support and donations of toys, clothes, vouchers and food especially around Christmas time.


Women and children living in domestic refuge are the secret homeless.  The have left everything they own, run away, often never to return.  To add to their stress and upset they have very few move on options, many families coming to refuge often move into homeless accommodation. Saoirse Women’s Refuge wants to highlight this issue, they are having a sleep out on Wednesday 28th November to coincide with the 16 day of Action Opposing Violence Against Women Campaign 2018.  The team wish to raise funds to open another refuge and the money raised from the Sleep Out will help this. Come and join the team on Wednesday 28th November 2018 at I.T.  Tallaght to help fundraise for their new refuge in South Dublin from 5pm to 9am.
