The Refund Project
Three of Ireland’s best-known charities, Simon Community, Focus Ireland and Peter McVerry Trust, have launched a major national fundraising campaign today called "The Refund Project" to coincide with the upcoming Irish Water national repayment scheme which will see €173 million handed back to almost 1 million account holders over the coming months.
The Refund Project is asking people who can afford it to donate their Irish Water refund to The Refund Project which will help people who are currently homeless. A special oversight group is being formed to spearhead this initiative, and it is chaired by the former head of the Workplace Relations Commission, Kieran Mulvey, who joins Ray in studio to tell us all about it...
