Peter McVerry Trust has a comprehensive Schools Programme for second, and primary level school students. We can provide information about our work, support with projects, as well as details about how your school can support our work.
A member of our team would be happy to visit your school to speak to students, and teachers about the work of Peter McVerry Trust, and the kinds of support we provide for people who need it. This talk can also be delivered via skype.
The information provided can often support students with any projects or subject requirements they have, but also can inform the student body of the reality of homelessness. With more and more children of school going age experiencing homelessness, our school talks can help other students be more empathetic towards their fellow students.
Supporting our Work
Peter McVerry Trust receives support from schools all over Ireland to help us continue our work with people who need it most. There are lots of ways that you can help raise funds for us, and we are here to provide any support you might need. You can hold a non- uniform day, a bake sale, a charity cycle or take part in our Big Sleep In and host a sleep in at your school or college. Learn more about the Big Sleep here.
