In 2011 the Irish Youth Foundation commissioned research on funding requirements for children and young people. Its findings were that Homework Clubs for children living in disadvantaged circumstances were an extremely important resource for young people and they lacked structured funding. A homework club is a safe place where young people can get help with their homework, have a warm meal and do activities like baking, art and sport. In 2018 the Irish Youth Foundation strives to support over 70 homework clubs across Ireland.
“You're giving has helped over a hundred young people each year overcome actual and perceived poverty, by attending clubs they find hope, purpose and belonging and in courage to have big dreams”Declan KeeganJust Ask Homework
