Chosen Charity - Simon Communities

The Simon Communities in Ireland are a network of eight regionally based independent Simon Communities based in Cork, Dublin, Dundalk, Galway, the Midlands, the Mid West, the North West and the South East that share common values and ethos in tackling all forms of homelessness throughout Ireland, supported by a National Office. The Simon Communities have been providing services in Ireland for almost 50 years. The Simon Communities deliver support and service to over 11,000 people and families throughout Ireland who experience – or are at risk of – homelessness every year. Whatever the issue, for as long as we are needed, Simon’s door is always open. 

Making a difference

Healthy work force: These events encourage social running amongst the business communities in Galway, Cork, Belfast and Dublin, helping to improve the health and wellness of the workforce and building team spirit.

Young athletes: Grant Thornton’s support also makes a positive difference to young, promising athletes in Northern Ireland and Ulster with event organisers Athletics Northern Ireland and Athletics Ireland channelling funds raised from these races into their Junior High Performance programmes which enable these emerging athletes to fulfil their potential. 

Over 600 people took on the Belfast City Airport Runway. See our highlight video below:
