Dearest Friends of ATD,

Spring has sprung at last and with it a time of hope and renewal. We hope you and your loved ones  are keeping well and that you enjoy this return to warmth and the rebirth of nature. May Spring be a season of joy, adventure, calm and colour for all. In the ATD office we have been busy with several new projects that are starting to bloom like the flowers. As always we are only a phone call or a doorbell away. 

With love,

The ATD team

Cyvling for Change

Breaking the 'cycle' of poverty!

ATD Ireland are planning a sponsored cycle from the famine museum in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon to the famine statues and poverty stone customs house quay Dublin. The cycle will take place from June 24th to 25th.  It will cover 180 km and will take place over two days and one night camping. This event is aimed at competent cyclists.

Each cyclist will need to have their own insurance cover; disclaimer- This is a private event not covered by ATD Ireland. Each cyclist will need to maintain and repair their own bike. Each cyclist will cover their own food and camping equipment.  Some tents will be available from ATD Ireland (but we advise cyclists to bring their own tent).

A support vehicle will be available for any emergency.

There is a €50 fee to join.   This will go towards costs and entrance to the Strokestown Famine museum. We are also asking for another €50 as a donation to ATD Ireland.  €100 cost overall.  Sponsorships very welcome! All sponsors will go towards supporting ATD Ireland. The purpose of this event will be to raise awareness and funds for ATD Ireland.

Contact if you are willing to join in or for more information.

Breaking Barriers

ATD Ireland are working on a new project funded by IHREC; Breaking barriers: A participatory approach to defining socio- economic discrimination.  This project will bring together the voices of those with lived experience of poverty and socio- economic discrimination, academics and professionals working in the community and voluntary sector.  In a participatory way, we hope to raise awareness and build a deeper understanding of socio- economic discrimination, working to create a robust definition which will help progress the #Addthe10th campaign.

Through our experience campaigning for a socio- economic status ground over the last number of years, a frequent obstacle we have come across is the question of ‘How to define socio- economic discrimination’.  This project will attempt to answer it, taking into consideration knowledge from different groups.  We will do this through individual interviews, group discussions, art, film and other methods. We hope that the end products will allow us to better engage with policymakers and progress the campaign.

Beyond creating an overall definition and pin pointing the main characteristics, we hope to continue to delve further into the causes of socio- economic discrimination and impacts on individuals and communities and understand the human lived experience.

This project will also enable us to develop more tools which will help us raise awareness of SED among the public and as an extension of our poverty- aware practice. Interviews have begun already and we have been delighted with the responses.

Keep an eye on our social media for updates!

ATD Ireland Strategic Goals

Under the Charites Governance Code all registered charities are required to complete this Charities Governance Code Compliance Record Form every year. ATD Ireland currently has a working group in place commissioned by the board to coordinate governance issues and the strategic work plan. The group decided on these four interrelated strategic goals through several discussions and in consideration of the concerns and wishes of all members. These goals were approved by the directors at the board meeting and the draft goals were on display and discussed with members over a number of weeks prior to the AGM.

Following are the draft goals for 2022-2026
Sping is when life's alive in everything
