Wrap Up Dublin* was a heart-warming winter campaign where we asked people to donate winter coat so we could pass them on to members of the homeless community here - doing something good to keep people warm.
This project was run in association with
We work with established agencies working in the homeless sector. Each person we gave a coat was also be given information on how they can access homeless services that can help them in the long-term.
Dublin - Out In The Cold
As we all now know, homelessness has rocketed by more than 25% in the past year across the capital. The latest figures show that 3,537 people in Dublin – that's one in every 380 people - no longer have a permanent roof over their heads. Of these, 161 are sleeping rough. This trend doesn't look like it's going to reverse anytime soon and many Dublin people are going to suffer over the coming winter months.
Giving Your Old Coat A New Life
Wrap Up Dublin was not a big budget campaign and we want to keep it that way. It's a celebration of what people can do by contributing in little ways, either by donating their winter coat or volunteering with us.
We asked for men's and women's coats so we can help keep Dubliners warm.
Please note, that we are unable to accept fur or any other donated items other than warm coats for Wrap Up Dublin.

*Wrap Up Dublin is inspired by Hands On London 'Wrap Up London' campaign and we are excited to bring their 7th annual winter campaign to Dublin.
